Driver Playing Pokemon Go Hits Baltimore Police Car in Accident (Watch)

A driver who crashed into a parked police car blamed playing Pokemon Go for the accident.

A passing Toyota RAV4 SUV slams into the patrol car, then drives on. Though not for long.

The officer wearing the bodycam approaches, and sees the driver (whose face is blurred).

“You guys are OK?” the serviceman asks.

“This is what I get for playing this dumbass game,” the driver answers miserably.

There were other people in the car. Luckily, none of them was hurt in the crash.
