#ILoveNES - The best NES nostalgia photos from UK Nintendo fans

Woman killed after struck by Pokemon Go distracted driver

This comes from Kotaku:

Last night at around 7:25pm in the Japanese city Tokushima, two women were hit while crossing the street, fatally injuring one of them. The driver, 39 year-old Keiji Goh, admitted he wasn’t watching the road ahead, because he was playing Pokémon Go.

According to ANN, one of the women, 72 year-old Sachiko Nakanishi, was transported to the hospital, where she later died. The other woman, 60 year-old Kayoko Igawa, suffered serious injuries from the accident.

NHK reports that Goh, who has since been arrested, is quoted as saying, “I was playing Pokémon Go while driving, so I didn’t really see what was in front of me.”

Earlier this month, a Pokémon Go update warned players not to play while driving.
