The Baltimore Police Department on Tuesday shared a video of a driver who said he was playing Pokémon Go when he crashed into a parked police car.

#PokemonGO is not all fun and games. Here is a video of a distracted driver who struck one of our cars. #PlaySafe

The crash, which was captured by an officer's body camera, took place while police were outside the car. No one was injured.

The crash took place around 3:30 a.m. Monday, as officers had finished a call for service in the city's Southeast Division.

The Toyota RAV4 veered to the right and struck the patrol car as it was parked along a curb.

"Fortunately, the officer was not inside his patrol car, and none of the occupants inside the other vehicle were injured," police said.

The driver told investigators he had been looking down at his phone at the time of the crash because he was playing Pokémon Go, police said.

"You guys are OK?" one of the officers said immediately after the crash.

The driver got out of the RAV4, still holding his phone. He apologized to officers and asked if they were alright.

"That's what I get for playing this dumbass game," he said.

Police asked residents to #PlaySafe and not drive distracted.
