Silly Pedestrian, Frogger is a game, not a practical way to cross a Freeway

The Detroit Free Press: Man killed in Southfield while trying to run across the Lodge Freeway

An unidentified man was killed late Wednesday night while trying to run across the Lodge Freeway in Southfield, the Michigan State Police Metro North Post said this morning.

A semi-tractor-trailer slammed into him on the southbound side of the highway just north of Southfield Road around 11:10 p.m., according to investigators
So you're running across the highway when its pitch dark, dodging cars and trucks going at 70+ miles per hour? Its a life-shortening experience even the fastest sprinter is ill-advised to try. This guy, not an Olympic-class sprinter, didn't quite make it across the road, and there's no retries in real life. Game over dude.
