Pokémon Go launched in USA 2 weeks ago, and there have reports of players getting harmed while aiming to capture a Pokemon. But possibly nothing is as impressive as this video from the Baltimore Cops Department of a distracted driver crashing into a patrol car as he was playing the game behind the wheel.

The accident that we are talking about took place at about 3:30 a.m. ET the other day, July 18, as per the Baltimore Cops; the area seems the corner of Eastern Avenue and S. Linwood Avenue located in the Canton community of the city. While three police officers were talking on the walkway, a Toyota Rav4 drove through the crossway and struck a parked squad car. The video came from a body video camera on one of the officers, the good news is that none of them were sitting in the patrol car at the time of the accident.
“The driver of the Rav4 informed investigators that he was looking down playing the Pokémon Go game when he struck the patrol car,” the Police Department stated.
When the recording officer approached the Rav4 to ask if the residents were alright, the driver stepped out of the car and revealed the cop his mobile phone playing Pokémon Go.
“That’s exactly what I get for playing this dumbass game,” the driver said. The passengers of the Rav4 were not injured.
