Frogger: don't try this at home

CLEMSON, S.C. - A man has been hospitalized after police in South
Carolina say he was hit by an SUV while playing a real-life version of
the video game "Frogger."

Authorities said the 23-year-old man was taken to a hospital in Anderson after he was struck at around 9 p.m. Monday.

In the "Frogger" arcade game, players move frogs
through traffic on a busy road and through a hazard-filled river. Before
he was hit, police say the man had been discussing the game with his

Chief Jimmy Dixon says the man yelled "go" and darted into oncoming traffic in the four-lane highway.

No charges are expected against the driver. The name
of the man who was struck has not been released. He was in stable
condition Monday night.
