The Wrap - Video posted on YouTube shows a man and woman falling under a black sedan. San Diego police say the family in the car was “afraid of the crowd” of zombies
At least two pedestrians were struck by a car on Saturday in San Diego during the Comic-Con Zombie Walk. A video posted on YouTube shows a man and a woman in a pink top – who were not believed to be part of the zombie march – falling under a black sedan.
A deaf family with small children was inside the vehicle when it slowly rolled through a large crowd of pedestrians.
The incident happened as Zombie Walk participants lined the streets near the corner of 2nd and Island Avenues just after 5:30 p.m., police said. The deaf family was waiting for the Zombie Walk participants to cross the street, so that they could proceed. But after several minutes, “the 48-year-old male driver slowly rolled forward trying to get out of the area,” the SDPD statement said, adding that the man’s children “were afraid of the crowd.”
Several people from the crowd of zombies and other pedestrians then “surrounded and began punching the car,” police said. The attack left the vehicle’s windshield shattered.
During the chaos, a 64-year-old woman was struck and “sustained serious arm injuries when she fell under the car,” police said. The man’s condition was not known.
On my long list of people who deserve to get hit and run over by cars, right up there near the top is “people who pretend to be zombies and clog an intersection for 30 minutes doing a Zombie Walk then punch and smash the windshield of any car that pulls up to them.” Might even be in the top 5.
I mean from the reporting it would appear that this lady who got hit was not part of the Zombie Walk and was just unlucky which sucks big time, but if I were her I’d be suing the fuck out of these nerds zombies not chasing down the deaf driver. Seriously what was that guy supposed to do? Pull up to a mass of people acting like the Undead hitting your car and threatening you while you have your little kids with you? Yeah don’t worry Zombies, I’ll wait, you’re the only ones with place to go and important things to do…like walking around the city pretending to be animated corpses. Only surprising thing is that he didn’t throw it in reverse first to gain some more speed for the plowing.
