Comic-Con Death: Twilight Fan Killed By Car While Waiting in Line

by at . Comments

Comic-Con isn't even underway yet, but it's already making news, and in the worst possible way: Tuesday, a woman was struck by a car and killed in San Diego while waiting in line to see some of her favorite actors from Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate released a joint statement today:

"Lionsgate, Summit and the entire Twilight community are saddened by the death of a Comic-Con fan today due to a traffic accident leading up to this year's convention in San Diego. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the victim's family and friends."

"She will be respectfully remembered this Thursday in Hall H."

The Twilight fan community responded just as quickly. Hours after the news of the tragedy broke, "RIPTwiFanG" was trending worldwide on Twitter.

It is unclear how the victim, a 53-year-old woman, will be recognized during the panel, but hopefully fans observe caution from here on out.

It's not uncommon for fans to stand in line for days just to get into to the San Diego Convention Center and capture a glimpse of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene & Co., and who can blame them.

But be careful people. Let this Comic-Con death be the last.
