Auburn PubThe Auburn Police Department released an advisory Wednesday after a driver reportedly crashed into a tree while playing “Pokemon Go.” The augmented reality smartphone game calls for players to catch virtual Pokemon in real-life locations. However, a 28-year-old driver — distracted while playing “Pokemon Go” — ran his vehicle off the road and crashed into a tree Tuesday night in the area of 144 Owasco St., according to the APD.

Police said officers responded at around 10:44 p.m. and the driver admitted to actively playing the game, which distracted him as he headed northbound on Owasco Street. Auburn Police Chief Shawn Butler said the driver suffered cuts to both legs and was disoriented, but was not seriously injured. He was transported to Auburn Community Hospital via TLC Ambulance. 

“The engine was actually starting to come into the passenger compartment,” Butler said. “Extremely lucky.”

An investigation is ongoing. Butler said tickets will likely be issued following the investigation. The name of the driver was not available Wednesday. The APD advisory reminds players to use “common sense” when playing “Pokemon Go.” The police department advises players to remember not to use the application while driving a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle.


I remember back in the good ol’ days when we only had to worry about people texting and driving. That was nothing. The best part about this is that the guy who crashed his car is 28. When I saw the headline I was expecting some dumbass 17 year old. But nope. It was a grown ass man chasing down imaginary Japanese cartoon on his phone while he’s operating a two ton vehicle on a public way. Because literally nothing is more important than capturing imaginary Japanese cartoons. If you catch them all then…….that’s good. You get…….something? Oh wait, you get nothing, because it’s just a game for children. Luckily this idiot didn’t kill someone in the process of playing a children’s video game.

My only question is, how did the cops know he was playing Pokemon Go? He must’ve told them, which makes him an even bigger dumbass. He could’ve just told them a dog ran out in front of his car, but instead he had to make himself sound like the biggest nudnik ever. For that alone he lose his license for at least 6 months.

P.S. Turns out this is not Auburn, MA. Nevertheless, the driver is still a huge moron.

    The thing to remember about adults in their mid to late 20s playing this is that it’s a nostalgia thing. The first Pokemon games on the Gameboy came out in the US back in 1998, right around the time when a now-28 year old was 10. I played my copy of Red nonstop as a kid and I’m sure a lot of other people did the same, so you can’t really blame Nintendo and Niantic for capitalizing on the fact that people our age are now at the point where we have our own money to spend rather than our parents’.

    Not to mention that the business model of a free game with $1.99 microtransactions inside of it is really hot right now. Between the nostalgia from the game’s content and the familiar way it works they already had a winner, but throwing in the whole ”augmented reality” thing really makes it seem novel and innovative even though Niantic has already done games like it in the past. It’s just a great combination of business and software that’s going to probably make both companies a lot of money as long as they update the game periodically to keep it from getting stale.

      And as long as there are drones of any age that would rather interact with mindless electronic distractions than reality. All present and future Democrat voters.

      Someone will definitly win a Darwin Award playing this stupid game. Either a car crash or getting hit by a train or something else incredibly stupid.
