The driver left to get a friend and a tow truck, but police arrived first and were able to get the van out of the ditch.

“Believe it or not the van wasn’t damaged and the driver drove the van away,” Carbone said via email, noting there was no damage to property and no charges.

According to Carbone, it is well-known that Google maps can send drivers astray near the bog.

However, that isn’t what happened here.

“I don’t believe this was the case,” he said.

Folks on social media appreciated the scene, with one person tweeting that the driver was almost “berried” in work.
