Let's hope she at least caught a Psyduck.
A 15-year-old girl is due to be released from a hospital shortly after being hit by a car — all due to her love for the incredibly popular new smartphone game, Pokemon Go, her mother says.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported that Autumn Deisenroth, 15, was hit by a car around 5:20 p.m. Tuesday while crossing the intersection of Corbet Street and Sixth Avenue in her hometown of Tarentum in western Pennsylvania
"The girl never leaves the house ... I thought, ‘what the heck,' and gave her my phone and here's what happened. I thought it would be a fun game, getting people out of the house. She'll never play Pokemon again," Deisenroth's mother, Tracy Nolan, told the Tribune-Review. "This would have not happened without her using that application."
Deisenroth was reportedly rushing home to tell her mother that she had found a Pokemon at the nearby Allegheny-Kiski Valley Heritage Museum and holding her phone, but was not playing the game when she was hit.
Deisenroth is expected to be released from Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh within a day.
