Police: Man Playing Real-Life Frogger Hit By SUV
CLEMSON, S.C. ---- A South Carolina man has been hospitalized after police say he was struck by an SUV while playing a real-life version of the video game ‘Frogger.’
Authorities said the 23-year-old man was hospitalized 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.
Maybe next time he’ll try the real-life version of ‘Duck Hunt,’ he could play the part of the duck.
