(Scroll down for video) Seems like some people are just fed up with Pokemon players walking onto private properties to catch Pokemon characters.

There have been reports of players being shot and harmed by irritated homeowners.

Now, a pregnant teenager believes that she is the latest victim of someone who was irritated with Pokemon players.

18-year-old Kaitlyn Shelton of Gladstone, Missouri, was walking with friends while playing Pokemon Go on Friday night.

The group admitted that they walked onto private properties to catch Pokemon.

However, they said that as the group began walking home, an erratic driver intentionally backed the car up and hit the pregnant woman.

Her sister Ashley, said that when Kaitlyn, who was 38 weeks pregnant, fell down, the driver backed up even more, pinning her under the car.

Ashley said that she thought that she lost her sister and her unborn baby.

Kaitlyn was rushed to the North Kansas City Hospital, where doctors performed an emergency Cesarean section while the mother was still unconscious.

Kaitlyn said that when she woke up, she asked about her unborn baby. She was told that he was already born.

Thankfully, the baby boy who was named Joshua Miles Shelton, is doing very well. Kaitlyn is recovering at the hospital.

Police have launched an investigation to locate the driver, who according to witnesses, hit her intentionally.
