REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP/WBOC) - Police are warning "Pokemon Go" gamers to not play the game and drive, after a driver crashed into a patrol car in Rehoboth Beach early Wednesday.

Rehoboth Beach Police say 28-year-old Mark A. Oldenburg of Dover was trying to help his wife get to a "Pokemon gym," when he made an improper turn and his Hyundai Sonata hit the patrol car on Rehoboth Avenue.

Although both vehicles sustained damages, no one was injured. Oldenburg was issued a summons for one count of inattentive driving and one count of an improper turn.

Pokemon "gyms" are sites of virtual battles between players of the game.

The Rehoboth Beach Police Department asks "Pokemon Go" players to play the game in safe surroundings and to refrain from doing so while driving.
