The stars of the Twilight series showed up to greet their fans at the 2012 Comic-Con event in San Diego, Calif. on Wednesday (July 11). Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Kellan Lutz, Elizabeth Reaser, Jackson Rathbone and Peter Facinelli were among the cast to take part in a panel discussion on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.
Unfortunately a Twi-hard fan was struck and killed by a vehicle while crossing the street to lineup for admission. She is identified as 53-year-old Gisella G.
According to The Hollywood Reporter the woman was “bleeding profusely” from the head when she was rushed to the hospital. The 67-year-old driver remained at the scene for questioning by the police.
