“It’s impossible to comment here without seeing the user’s driving file and we haven’t received permission to do so- generally speaking, Waze maps are updated with millions of edits to adapt to real time road conditions daily, often making them the most accurate available,” she said via email.

The police chief in Burlington, Vermont, Brandon del Pozo, told USA Today that the people in the car hadn’t been charged or cited. The driver said he had one beer at a nearby brewery and agreed to sobriety tests, according to the story, and an officer said he didn’t think the driver was intoxicated.

According to a police report cited by USA Today, the Jeep sunk to its sad, watery, semi-avoidable death on Jan. 12. It spent 10 days in the lake before the salvage crew recovered it, along with some of the craft beer Guertin’s friends bought.
