The story claimed that a 26-year-old man in Massachusetts was responsible for "causing one of the worst highway accidents after stopping in the middle of the highway to catch a Pikachu."
Well, no. It's a hoax.
The article was published on CartelPress.com, a fake news website run by the same people behind Huzlers, another long time source of hoaxes.
The highway accident story is spreading quickly and has already been shared more than 60,000 times on Facebook, racking up nearly 150,000 likes.
