Clemson Police say the 23-year old man was with some friends at the intersection of two highways around 9:00 p.m., reports CBS affiliate WSPA

The victim and friends were discussing the video game "Frogger," where the player makes a frog jump out in front of objects and avoid being struck by them.

Investigators say the victim yelled "go" and darted across the highway into oncoming traffic.

He was struck by a 2010 Lexus SUV and was transported to a hospital in nearby Anderson.

The man is listed in stable condition and his name hasn't been released.

Clemson Police say it doesn't appear any charges will be filed against the SUV driver.
