Driver says her GPS landed her in the Mercer Slough.

Three women in a rental car blame GPS directions for landing them in the water early Wednesday in Bellevue. KIRO-TV reports the women say GPS told them to make a U-turn. They ended up going down a boat ramp into Mercer Slough.

The women are visiting Bellevue from out of town. Firefighters gave them a ride back to their hotel.
