Earlier this morning, it was reported a Twilight: Breaking Dawn 2 fan was killed on her way to Comic-Con 2012 Twilight Saga Panel. An unidentified 53-year-old woman referred to as “Gisella” by fellow Twilight fans on social media was hit by a car on her way to line up for the Twilight Saga panel. Police reports indicated she was in a crosswalk trying to run across Harbor. She tried to stop when she saw an oncoming Subaru but tripped onto the car. The 67-year-old male driver of the Subaru that struck her is cooperating with police. The woman sustained fatal head trauma and was pronounced dead at 9:51 AM.
Lionsgate released the following statement about the tragic accident:
