Real-Life Frogger Ends In Hospital Visit 314

Posted by samzenpus
from the going-for-the-logs dept.
BigSes writes "A 23-year old 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 Monday evening. Before he was hit, police say the man had been discussing the game with his friends. Chief Jimmy Dixon says the man yelled 'go' and darted into oncoming traffic in the four-lane highway. Has it come time to ban some of the classics before someone else goes out and breaks a few bricks with their heads after eating a large mushroom?"

Interesting to note that the "war machines" comment was not from a journalist but Sir Greg Winter, Deputy Director at the laboratory undertaking the research :-) Link to original article http://www2.mrc-lmb.cam.ac.uk/news-and-events/lmb-news/lmb-scientists-redefine-how-our-immune-system-responds-to-viruses Link to academic publication http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2010/11/01/1014074107.full.pdf+html
