A MAN was taken to hospital 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 9pm on Monday local time.
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 friends.
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 last night.

See? Look what happened to simple video games! It made certain persons believe that playing "Frogger" in real life is fun when that guy almost lost his life instead! How much more foolish could people be when they play more VIOLENT video games and take that to the extreme and apply their gaming addiction in real life?
