A beautiful young lady lost her life, following a ‘hit-and-run’ crash after going out to play the new game that’s taking over, Pokemon Go.
Tanami Nayler, 22, had gone out to play the augmented reality game when she was hit by a car and dragged more than 70 metres down the road and killed in Melbourne, Australia.
Police said her phone was in her pocket at the time after her and a friend had just finished scouring the streets to catch Pokemon characters on Friday night.
She was hit by a stolen Toyota Corolla before the driver allegedly sped away through a red light and later crashed into a tree and a telegraph pole.
Detective Inspector Stuart McGregor described the tragedy as ‘an absolute waste of life’.
“All she did was just walk across the pedestrian crossing, legally, and [she] has unfortunately paid with her life because of someone else’s behaviour.
“It’s fair to say that this is probably one of the lowest acts I think you can commit on the road. To me it’s just despicable.””Unfortunately, we’ve seen the worst of humanity where the driver has got out and just run away,” he continued.
“No attempt to assist, no attempt to concern themselves with the welfare of the person he has hit.”
Mr Davison could face up to 20 years behind bars if convicted on all the charges. The crash came just days after three teenagers were robbed of their phones at gunpoint in a London park while they were playing Pokemon Go.
The young victims – who were aged 15, 16 and 18 – were enjoying the popular augmented reality game Whittington Park in Holloway on Tuesday night.
