An Iowa teenager is dead after a cell phone game turned deadly. The teenager
and his friends were playing a game called Hostage when the boy was
struck by a minivan. The principal of City High in Iowa City, sent an email Wednesday morning
confirming the junior had died in an accident. According to the Johnson
County Sheriff's Office, three male teenagers were on the road using
their cell phones to play a game and two of the teens were hit by a minivan
on Monday. The game was called "Hostage" and about 10:40 p.m.
the teens were standing in the middle of the road. A minivan was approaching
them and the teenagers claim they thought it was a friend coming to give
them a ride. Deputies said two teenagers could not get out of the way
when they realized too late the minivan wasn't slowing. One of the
teens was struck head on, and emergency responders took him to a nearby
hospital where he later died from his injuries. The second teen was driven
to the hospital with unknown injuries by a private party. The third teen
was not injured.
