Amazon driver somehow gets stuck inside golf cart tunnel
A Michigan Amazon driver who got stuck in a golf cart tunnel blamed his faulty GPS for leading him astray.
The bizarre incident happened around 2:30 p.m. Saturday, when the delivery truck became trapped about 6 feet into the tunnel at the Boulder Point Golf Club in Oxford, The Detroit Free Press reported.
Bill Offer, the outside services supervisor at the facility, was going through the tunnel when he realized the wayward motorist was blocking his path, he told the paper.
He went over to talk to the disoriented but apologetic driver — who claimed the GPS led him there.
“I said, ‘You couldn’t have been, you’re on a cart path,’ ” Offer said.
The driver apparently made a wrong turn and didn’t realize his truck was too big for the tunnel, which runs under a road, according to the supervisor. Although the tunnel, a two-way cart path, does appear to be the width of a road, he said.
Offer was angry at first, but calmed down once he realized how shaken the driver was.
“Not physically shaken,” Offer told MLive. “But he had no place to go, he was between a rock and a hard place.”
A tow truck responded to remove the van, as well as the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department to make sure both parties were covered insurance-wise, according to the report.
An Amazon supervisor arrived to load the items in the van into another vehicle and give the driver a ride, the outlet reported.
It took about 90 minutes to clear the scene.
No one was hurt, and the tunnel is expected to make a full recovery.
“People are making jokes online like ‘so that’s where my golf clubs went,’” Offer told MLive. “But everyone is OK. It was quite funny.”
