Baltimore, Maryland. Three cops, writing up a ticket on the side of the road, were lucky to escape with their lives on Monday night after a driver crashed into their stationery car while playing Pokemon Go. It was 3.30am and the driver was distracted while playing the augmented reality smartphone game.
T.J. Smith, chief of Media Relations for Baltimore police told the media in a press conference afterwards:
“We want you to play safe. If you’re going to do it, you have to play safe. You have to pay attention while driving. Don’t play this Pokémon game while driving!”
“This is serious stuff. It is a game,” he went on. “But it’s not a game when you’re behind the wheel of a 2,000lb vehicle, driving down the road. Play smart.”
“That’s what I get for playing this dumb*ss game…” The driver later said.
