It's been a while, thankfully, since we reported on any serious injuries connected to people playing Pokémon Go, but last night the 72 year-old Sachiko Nakanishi died from the injuries after she and the 60 year-old Kayoko Igawa were hit by a car.

The driver was a 39 year-old man, who has since then reportedly stated that he wasn't paying attention to the road since he was busy with his phone, playing Pokémon Go. The reports don't say anything about the seriousness of the other woman's injuries, but we hope she'll make a full recovery.

Thanks, Kotaku.
