(MILWAUKEE) — The driver of a tractor-trailer that ended up in the middle of a Milwaukee park reportedly told police his GPS navigation system led him there.

The driver, who was not identified, drove his trailer onto a walkway in Milwaukee’s Lake Park on Tuesday afternoon. The driver steered the truck over two bridges, striking a tree and damaging a railway in the process, according to ABC News affiliate WISN.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported the driver was a 50-year-old man from Indiana. He was fined $579.80 for reckless driving and failure to obey signs, police said, according to the newspaper.

Milwaukee County Sheriff’s officials did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

Crews arrived on Wednesday to remove the truck from the park.
