'Zombie Walk' Is Back at Comic-Con, 2 Years After Hit-and-Run Crash
Hundreds of fans returned to the event Saturday in San Diego, covered in gore.
Comic-Con's famous "Zombie Walk" has returned, two years after a panicked driver plowed into a crowd of "the undead" in San Diego, leaving a woman seriously injured.
Over the weekend, hundreds of fans made to look like zombies from 28 Days Later..., Night of the Living Dead, The Walking Dead and other classic films and TV shows trudged along the streets in character.
The event was put on hiatus after pedestrian Cynthia Campbell was hit by deaf driver Matthew Pocci in 2014's “Zombie Walk.”
Cops say Pocci failed to yield to pedestrians and hit Campbell, pinning her under his car.
He was sentenced to three years' probation and 60 days of electronic monitoring in 2015 after being convicted of felony reckless driving causing serious injury.
One police officer told Inside Edition during the "Zombie Walk's" return: “Our emphasis is safety. We want to make sure that anyone involved in the event can do so without being injured.”
Police say the 2016 "Zombie Walk" went off without a hitch.
