Subaru Outback bogged in sand after driver didn’t realise he was on a beach

The Gold Coast City Council is investigating how a Subaru Outback was able to drive onto Miami Beach, with the car’s driver blaming faulty sat-nav directions for the mishap.

A Gold Coast motorist has been left red-faced after driving his Subaru Outback onto a beach and becoming bogged in the early hours of the morning, with local government officials investigating how the incident occurred.

9 News Gold Coast reports 30-year-old Queensland resident Chris Sharpe was returning home after a night of storm-chasing when he drove onto the sand on the Gold Coast’s Miami Beach at about 2am on September 6.

Mr Sharpe claims he was following the directions given to him by his Subaru Outback’s in-built satellite navigation system but didn’t realise he was driving on a beach, despite the wagon making significant tyre tracks in the sand.
