(Newser) – A GPS tragedy in Britain: A 4-year-old girl was killed when her parents followed instructions that contradicted road signs, the BBC reports. Ariana Bardhaj died from multiple injuries after her parents made an illegal right turn into traffic. "They were following a sat-nav and it told them to turn right," a Manchester police officer told an inquest into the incident. "There's plenty of signage there saying 'No right turn'. The sat-nav said turn right and they followed that and didn't follow the signs."
