Dozens of vehicles struggled on Sunday through a & # 39; muddy mess & # 39; of a road after they had followed the directions from Google Maps that offered a shortcut to Denver International Airport.

Connie Monsees, a resident of Highlands Ranch, used her Google maps app to avoid a traffic jam on Pena Boulevard on Sundays. She quickly landed on the muddy off-road.

& # 39; Eventually it took me to a road that … got dirty, & # 39; Monsees explained on an ABC News podcast .. & # 39; I wasn't the only one, there were probably a hundred cars & # 39; s. & # 39;

Monsees explained that the route & # 39; a muddy mess of a field & # 39; was because of the rain that came through the whole weekend. She added that cars & # 39; s got stuck when they were stuck to move.

Luckliy, Monsees had four-wheel drive and could maneuver around the slippery road. Her vehicle quickly became a hot commodity.

& # 39; This man walked past my car and said, "Are you going to the airport?" And I said: & # 39; I am & # 39 ;, she went on. & # 39; He has been in the car with me because the car he was in would not make it. & # 39;

Monsees picked up an Uber passenger and quickly brought the two people to the airport.

She said: & # 39; We made it and they both made their flights. It was just incredible. & # 39;

The ride took Monsees three and a half hours, but would normally have taken her only an hour and a half for the tour. However, she does not blame Google.

& # 39; They have brought us, as far as they knew, to a good place. But I think as a society we are too busy trying to do things just quickly, & she said.

In a statement, Google said it was the & # 39; size of the road and the directness of the route & # 39; when calculating driving routes.

& # 39; Although we always work to provide the best directions, problems may occur due to unforeseen circumstances such as the weather, & # 39; a spokesperson added. & # 39; We encourage all drivers to follow local laws, stay alert and use common sense while driving. & # 39;
