    An elderly S.D. man crossed state lines after apparently getting lost in the fog.

    An 82-year-old rural South Dakota man said to have been lost in the fog was discovered more than 300 miles from his home.

    Leonard Johnson, of Britton, S.D., was found a six-hour drive away in Grand Rapids, Minn., The Associated Press reported on Sunday.

    After having been last spotted on Friday, police were on the lookout for his blue 1990 Ford F-150 truck. A man matching Johnson’s description was spotted the following day at a car dealership asking for directions, WDAY-TV in Fargo reported.

    Officials said they believed Johnson made his epic wrong turn after encountering dense fog.
