AUBURN, N.Y. (AP) - A man is recovering from minor injuries he suffered when he crashed his brother’s car into a tree in central New York while playing Pokemon Go on his smartphone.

Police in Auburn in the Finger Lakes region tell The Citizen (https://bit.ly/29IbcyK ) that 28-year-old Steven Cary of Portland, Oregon, crashed late Tuesday night while playing the wildly popular digital-monster cellphone game.

Authorities say Cary suffered a broken ankle and cuts to both legs. Police Chief Shawn Butler says his injuries could’ve been worse because the impact of the crash nearly sent the engine into the passenger compartment.

Cary was ticketed for using a mobile device while driving and failing to remain in his lane.

Butler says the car, which was totaled, belonged to Cary’s brother. The police chief says Cary was visiting his mother at the time of the crash.
