Pokémon Go is pretty cool right now, but driving while playing and then crashing your car certainly isn’t.
A driver made an “unplanned PokéStop” when he crashed into a school in Melbourne on Thursday evening, according to police in the Australian state of Victoria.
The 19-year-old was trying to capture a Pokémon when he lost control of his car, which ran off the road, went through a fence, then collided with a portable school building. Fortunately, nobody was injured in the ordeal.
“The 19-year-old did not level up nor collect any stardust or candies only debris from the crash,” Julie-Anne Newman, leading senior constable for the Victoria Police and an apparent Pokémon expert, said in a statement.
“Any Poké Balls, eggs or potions the driver may have had remaining only attracted police leaving the wild Pokémon for another day.”
Victoria Police said the driver returned a negative breath test, but he is still expected to be charged with careless driving.
Apparently, he didn’t pay attention when road authorities in Victoria put up road signs with the warning “DON’T DRIVE AND POKEMON.” Please, kids, be careful.
