Last night, a 19-year-old Australian man crashed into a secondary college in Melbourne while playing Pokemon GO.

Australian newspaper The Age reports that the incident happened around 7 p.m. local time while the man was attempting to snag a Pokemon and lost control of his vehicle as it crashed into a portable classroom.

Fortunately, no one was injured. The Melbourne police gave a light-hearted description of the incident, with a spokesperson saying, “The 19-year-old did not level up nor collect any stardust or candies, only debris from the crash.”

“Any ‘Poke balls,’ eggs or potions the driver may have had remaining only attracted police, leaving the wild Pokemon for another day,” the department added.

As wonderfully fun as the new mobile sensation can be, it’s also lead to harmful prank calls, trespassing and the discovery of a corpse.
