Amazon driver gets bogged down in Duxbury

Wrong turn lands driver in a ditch near a cranberry bog. Don't worry, the van didn't get berried.

An Amazon delivery driver got a little bogged down in Duxbury on Sunday, according to police.

The driver got lost and, while turning around, drove into a ditch by a cranberry bog, according to Deputy Chief Michael Carbone.

The driver left to get a friend and a tow truck, but police arrived first and were able to get the van out of the ditch.

“Believe it or not the van wasn’t damaged and the driver drove the van away,” Carbone said via email, noting there was no damage to property and no charges.

According to Carbone, it is well-known around town that Google maps can send drivers astray near the bog. That is what happened here, Carbone said Tuesday,


“The driver was following his GPS and it took him into the bog area where he drove into a ditch as he tried to turn around,” he said.

Folks on social media appreciated the scene, with one person tweeting that the driver was almost “berried” in work.
