Notorious Road Removed From Google Maps After A Driver Froze To Death

18-year-old Sergey Ustinov and Vladislav Istomin went missing after following the recommended routing of Google Maps

After a tragic accident that took the life of a driver when his car broke down on a road connecting Magadan and Yakutsk cities in the freezing cold of -50 degrees Celsius, Google has removed the road from its Maps to prevent similar tragedies to happen in the future.

18-year-old Sergey Ustinov and Vladislav Istomin went missing after following the recommended routing of Google Maps. After searching for them for a week, police found the body of the poor boy in the car which was then covered in snow at a temperature of -50 degrees Celsius.

The two boys were found on the Road of Bones – the nickname of the R504 Kolyma highway whose construction history is quite horrific. The 1,262-mile-long Road of Bones is part of the M56 Route and is a Russian Federal Highway.

The other boy was hospitalized because he suffered from frostbite. He later told the police what happened after the car and the radiator broke down.

The tragic accident and the worsening condition of the road are the two main reasons why Google decided to remove it from the company’s system to avoid future accidents. The R504 Kolyma highway becomes extremely dangerous due to the lack of traffic in winter and snow clearing equipment.

Google has also updated Maps to show the live updates of delivery orders and takeout in India, Australia, Canada, Brazil, Canada, and the U.S when users order from Google Maps.

So now users in these countries can see the expected delivery fees, wait time, and when their food arrives right from the app itself.
