According to her mother, Tracy Nolan, Diesroth had been playing the game when she found herself in the middle of a busy highway. When she tried to cross to get closer to the augmented-reality creature, she was hit by an oncoming car.

“The Pokemon game took her across a major highway at 5 o’clock in the evening, which is rush hour,” Nolan told Channel 11. “Parents, don’t let your kids play this game because you don’t want to go through what I went through last night. I really thought I was losing my daughter.”

Diesroth was left covered in scrapes, bruises, and injuries to her collarbone and foot. She remains in the hospital where she can safely catch ’em all.
