We thought the days of the insane Pokemon GO-related incidents were behind us as the game’s popularity started to decrease, but we were wrong. As reported by the Japan Times, 9-year-old Keita Norikate was hit by a truck while he was returning home from school in Ichinomiya, Aichi.
The boy died two hours later, and Nobusuke Kawai, the 36-year-old driver of the truck and Pokemon GO player, was arrested. He admitted to playing the game frequently while driving. When the game was popular back in July and August, we saw a story like this almost every single day.
