Pokemon Go Canada: Two players crash into Quebec City cops

After a week of buzz, Pokemon Go officially launched in Canada.

Quebec City police had their first run-in with Pokémon Go players on Tuesday, and it didn’t go very well.

A driver and passenger playing the game in a car crashed into a police cruiser when they reversed suddenly in the parking lot of the library on Bastien Boulevard.

According to CBC, the police officers only sustained minor injuries when the driver—who presumably was trying to throw a pokéball—ran into their cruiser while suddenly reversing in a parking lot. The Quebec City cops who the distracted driver crashed into had been following the Pokémon Go car and were about to pull them over for turning without a signal.

The driver who caused the crash, miraculously, was only given two $30 tickets—one for the failure to signal that initially was going to get them pulled over, one for reversing without properly looking beforehand. Apparently, when police asked the players about the cause of the accident, they admitted that they were playing Pokémon Go, claiming that they hadn’t even noticed the officers were following them.

The accident is far from the only one that the game has been involved in. On the same night in upstate New York, a dude wrapped his car around a tree while attempting to catch a “special” pokémon.
