A man admitted to being distracted by the new app after rear-ending another vehicle Monday.
The Washington State Patrol has logged its first ‘Pokémon Go’ crash.
A 28-year-old driver told officials he was distracted by the popular new game app when he rear-ended a Chevy sedan on Highway 202 in Fall City Monday, the State Patrol reported. Neither the female driver of the Chevy nor her child were injured, but both cars were towed from the scene. It’s unclear if the 28-year-old was injured.
He was cited on suspicion of causing the crash, the release says.
“The WSP urges gamers to consider safety over their high score,” the State Patrol said in a news release.
