SAN DIEGO – A man whose vehicle struck a pedestrian during a Comic-Con-related “zombie walk” last July will face charges for reckless driving causing injury.

The incident occurred around 5:30 p.m. July 26 in the Gaslamp district. The motorist tried to drive away from the intersection of Island and Second avenues after waiting for as long as 10 minutes as a raucous group of people portraying roaming corpses passed by, according to San Diego police.

The driver’s black Honda sedan struck three or four people, including a 64-year-old woman who fell underneath it. She was most seriously injured, and at least one of the other victims sustained minor bruises.

The driver, who is deaf, immediately contacted police to report what had happened, Officer Mark McCullough said.

His arraignment is scheduled for March 8.
