Twilight Fan Hit By Car & Killed At Comic Con
 

COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL ATTENDEE STRUCK, KILLED BY CAR


A 53-year-old "Twilight" fan who was camping outside the San Diego Convention Center in anticipation of Thursday's Hall H panel died this morning after being struck by a car.

According to U-T San Diego, police say the woman was running across Harbor Street at about 9:20 a.m. when she tried to stop to avoid an oncoming Subaru but instead tripped into the car. She was unconscious and bleeding from her head when she was transported to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The woman's name is being withheld until her family can be notified.

Examiner.com points to a photo on what's believed to be the woman's Twitter account, showing her with friends at the front of the line for the final "Twilight" panel. Fans of Stephenie Meyer's bestselling novels, and the blockbuster movie franchise they spawned, have become a significant presence at Comic-Con International over the past few years, where many of them camp outside the convention center for days in advance in a tent-and-sleeping-bag city dubbed "Camp Twilight."

"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2" panel will be held Thursday at 10 a.m.

And to think, if they didn't split this last one up into two parts she'd probably still be alive.

Did she cross at a marked crosswalk?

That's too bad. She should have been given the chance to outgrow her juvenile interest in sparkly teen vampires.

Not sure it matters

According to U-T San Diego, police say the woman was running across Harbor Street at about 9:20 a.m. when she tried to stop to avoid an oncoming Subaru but instead tripped into the car.

Sounds like Darwin stepped in.

#1 question, was she running across a cross walk? I'm guessing the fact she was running I would say no. But would like to see some of those details.

She probably would have killed herself after the movie came out anyway.

That's so sad. On a positive note, I have a slightly better chance of getting into Hall H on Thursday.

If she had been rushing across the street to catch a sale on glitter at the craft store, that would have been funny.

I think you can understand why she would have an aversion to crosswalks.

Five bucks says that every woman in that pic is single and owns at least two cats.

At the size of them...I doubt they had a chance of safely escaping a car hitting them.
