Do you know what to do if you’re in an accident?

The man ran into a stopped vehicle and injured his arm, according to police.

A pedestrian slammed into a stopped vehicle in Tempe on Monday, and told officials he was high on mushrooms, police released.

The driver of the vehicle had stopped in the middle of a residential street near University Drive and Dorsey Lane after seeing the pedestrian acting “abnormal,” according to Tempe Police Department Spokeswoman Sgt. Josie Montenegro. 

The unidentified man, believed to be in his 20s, then ran into the vehicle, injuring his arm, Montenegro said.

Psilocybin mushrooms — better known as “magic mushrooms” — can cause hallucinations and a distorted sense of time, among other effects.

The man was taken to a hospital for further evaluation.

Further details were not immediately available.
