From huge increases in traffic to small businesses to reports of people unintentionally exercising while playing, it's safe to say a lot of crazy stuff has happened since Pokémon Go hit the scene like a Hitmonchan. And now, just a week after the insanely popular game launched in the US, it looks like someone crashed their damn car while playing.
A 28-year-old man veered off the road and crashed into a tree Wednesday night in Auburn, NY, according to a public safety notice from the local police. Notably, authorities said the driver admitted to playing Pokémon Go behind the wheel, which as Business Insider reports, could make it the first crash linked to the game.
Luckily, the man suffered only minor injuries, but as you can imagine, the crash could have been a lot worse. Either way, it's a high price to pay for trying to catch a damn Pikachu or hitting up another Pokéstop with an open Lure Module.
