Cops: Man playing real-life 'Frogger' hit by SUV

Man yelled 'go' and darted into four-lane highway, officer says

Associated Press

CLEMSON, S.C. — A man has been hospitalized after police in South Carolina say he was hit by an SUV while playing a real-life version of the video game "Frogger."

Authorities said the 23-year-old man was taken to a hospital in Anderson after he was struck at around 9 p.m. Monday.

In the "Frogger" arcade game, players move frogs through traffic on a busy road and through a hazard-filled river. Before he was hit, police say the man had been discussing the game with his friends.

Chief Jimmy Dixon says the man yelled "go" and darted into oncoming traffic in the four-lane highway.

No charges are expected against the driver. The name of the man who was struck has not been released. He was in stable condition Monday night.

This dummy deserves the consequence of his actions. I feel sorry for the emotional distress (of hitting and possibly hurting a pedestrian, no matter how unintelligent that person may be)and the damages and time without their vehicle that the SUV driver has to go through.
