An elderly woman was hospitalized after she was hit by a car on Saturday evening, when a Zombie Walk event during California’s Comic-Con weekend ended in chaos.

The annual parade, featuring fans dressed up as the undead, took place not far from the San Diego Convention Center, where a deaf driver, who was traveling with his two children, who were also hard of hearing, was stopped to let the march pass by.

The kids became scared, prompting the dad to try and move out of the area.

However, according to authorities, a number of Zombie Walk participants grew angry at the man for attempting to drive through the crowd and “surrounded and began punching” the car.

A spokesperson from the San Diego Police Department adds, “Several of them climbed onto the car and beat on the car. The car windshield was shattered by the crowd.”

The man attempted to drive away and ended up knocking down the 64-year-old pedestrian, who sustained “serious arm injuries”, before he was able to get away from the mob and flag down a police officer.

The Zombie Walk is not directly affiliated with organizers at Comic-Con.

No arrests were made, but police are currently investigating the scary incident.
