Hey, everyone. A 23-year old, after what must have been a lengthy, thoughtful discussion with his friends, was hit by a car after attempting to recreate the Atari game of Frogger. No, really. Because he thought it could happen in real life. He thought that all vehicles in all four lanes of South Carolina highway traffic would be traveling equidistantly at the same exact speed. And he thought he had amphibian-like reflexes. Honest mistake.
According to police reports, “Chief Jimmy Dixon says the man yelled ‘go’ and darted into oncoming traffic in the four-lane highway.” Geekologie also notes that this is not the first time it’s happened. (Oh, Sweden.)
