Driver Plows Through San Diego Comic-Con Zombie Walk

Zombie_Pedestrian_AccidentA frightened driver drove through a crowd of people participating in a Zombie Walk at Comic-Con Sunday afternoon, hospitalizing one woman.

There are several conflicting reports on the accident, however, a video of the accident shows the 48-year-old man slowly pushing his way through the crowd with his car while people started surrounding his Civic. The driver then stepped on the gas and drove a few blocks.

Several zombie walkers were thrown to the ground, but only one 64-year-old woman was transported to a hospital. The woman who was hospitalized is suffering serious but non-life-threatening arm injuries and lacerations.

San Diego Police stated that man drove through the crowd because walkers scared his deaf family. No arrests or charges have been made.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first pedestrian vs. car accident at Comic-Con. In 2012, a 53-year-old fan was struck and killed by a car while running across a street to get in line for a Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 panel.

Large crowds near streets at conventions and fairs can lead to tragic consequences. It is important to watch out for people that may not be aware or accepting of the event pedestrian traffic especially if there isn’t traffic enforcement present.

If you have been injured in any California pedestrian accident, you maybe entitled to compensation for your medical treatment and pain and suffering. You can find out if you have a pursuable claim by calling an attorney today.

Four Injured After Six Flags Roller Coaster Derailment

Magic Mountain AccidentRoller coasters are a carefree form of excitement for many people until an accident happens. Tuesday night four people were injured and about two dozen people were stranded on a Six Flags Magic Mountain roller coaster.

The accident occurred when a tree branch fell on the track, obstructing and derailing the roller coaster car. The 22 riders were stranded 20 feet above the ground for three hours.

Amusement parks are among the safest outdoor pastimes available. According to the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions there is only a 1 in 24 million chance of being seriously injured at a fixed-site amusement park.

However, when a park fails to monitor the condition of their rides or a ride component is defective it can lead to serious consequences. Just last year a 52-year-old woman was killed after being ejected from a Six Flags Over Texas ride because she wasn’t secured in her seat.

Depending on the circumstance of the accident, an accident victim may have the opportunity to file a negligence or defective product claim. Unfortunately, just because you can file a claim doesn’t mean you will be fairly treated or compensated for your injuries.
