Lost man drives 370 miles to pick up newspaper

By TOM PHILLIPS – Thursday, November 19, 2009

An elderly Australian man who went out to fetch a morning newspaper ended up driving more than 370 miles after getting lost and taking a wrong turn onto a major highway, police said.

The man, 81-year-old Eric Steward, eventually stopped and asked for directions after driving for nine hours, from the New South Wales country town of Yass to Geelong in the southern Victoria state.

Steward, who did not know where he was, eventually approached a policeman at a petrol station and asked for help late Wednesday.
