Watch where you’re going: 

Japanese truck driver playing Pokemon GO while driving hit two women, killing one and injuring the other, in Japan’s first death related to the Nintendo Co craze.

The driver said he was distracted by the game after his arrest for negligent driving following the accident on Wednesday evening, a spokesman for the Tokushima prefectural police said.

“The driver is still in custody. No decision has been made yet on whether to proceed with a prosecution,” he added.

A spokesman for Niantic Inc, which developed Pokemon GO jointly with Nintendo affiliate Pokemon Company, said the company had added a pop-up to the Pokemon GO screen when it detected an increase in speed, asking for confirmation that the user was not driving.



“Pokemon Company and Niantic endeavour to create an environment where people can play the game safely and we will continue to do that,” he added when asked whether the company would take any new measures to guard against accidents. — Reuters
