A 23-year-old man in South Carolina was hospitalized after having been hit by an SUV while playing a real-life version of the video game Frogger, according to police.

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.
