So grown people are wandering around – in some cases DRIVING around – while staring at their little gadgets playing some meaningless game instead of living their lives? I can hear Mother Earth’s momentous sigh of relief when our species finally stupids itself into extinction.
If someone crashes into me and hurts one of my kids while playing that stupid game, the cops wouldn’t have to worry about the idiot hurting anybody else! Time for people to grow up. It’s no wonder the country is the way it is!
Wonder if his insurance company will fight the claim. Why should they pay for stupidity?
From the Smoking Gun:
The 28-year-old driver was not seriously injured in the accident, which left his car crumpled. The vehicle, seen in the adjacent police photo, careened off a road in the city of Auburn and struck a tree around 10:45 PM Tuesday.
The driver, Steven Cary, suffered a broken ankle and cuts to his legs. Cary, who was driving his younger brother’s car, was transported to a local hospital for treatment. He is expected to be cited in connection with the one-car accident.
In a Facebook post, Cary’s mother wrote that her son “will not answer a phone call or text while driving,” but when he saw a “‘special’ Pokémon on his app…He looked down for a minute and woke up in an ambulance.” Noting that she was thankful nobody was in the crumpled passenger seat, Tricia Finn Cary added that her son (seen at left) did not “catch” the Pokémon he spotted, “or if he did he doesn’t know because the phone is buried in the twisted plastic and metal that used to be his brother’s car!”
The motorist, cops say, “admitted to actively playing the ‘Pokémon Go’ game while driving causing him to become distracted and run off the roadway into a tree.” A police safety alert notes how “easily accidents can occur when someone is engaged in the game and not paying attention.”
First drunk driving, then texting while driving, now Pokemon and driving! With technology today why can’t they come up with an app that shuts your phone down in a moving vehicle?
The country is falling apart, and these jerks are running around playing a stupid game. Maybe we should start a game on Nov 11th that takes them miles away from voting booths.
Can you believe this game is a huge threat to grown ups? This is so bizarre for adults to get caught up in a mobile game that could cost them their lives. Do you agree? Share your voices below in our comment section and give us your feelings.
