Pokémon Go player almost hit by driver playing Pokémon Go

Police say a woman playing Pokémon Go in a parking lot north of Toronto was nearly hit by a driver who was also playing the wildly popular smartphone game. Police in Innisfil, Ont., say the woman called to report nearly being hit around 2 a.m. Tuesday. They say that as officers were interviewing the woman, the driver returned and admitted to playing the game at the wheel. Investigators say the driver couldn’t be charged because no collision occurred, but they are urging players to be careful.

It isn't Poké-fatigue quite yet, but some of the excitement around Pokémon Go is starting to fade. After 20 days dominating the App Store, the mobile game has fallen to No. 2 in the US. Bitmoji took the crown from the mobile game, which remains No. 1 on Google Play.
