'Zombie Walk' returns two years after hit-and-run crash

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The Comic-Con tradition that so many fans of the hit show 'The Walking Dead' look forward to took a break last year after a woman was seriously hurt in a hit-and-run crash during the walk in 2014.

Matthew Pocci, a deaf motorist, drove through a group of spectators watching the 'Zombie Walk' parade in San Diego.

Pocci was found guilty of Felony reckless driving in November of 2015.

Through social media, organizers announced this year's 'Zombie Walk' will make its way down 5th Avenue. Police say they have extra officers to monitor the event. 

"It is the busiest day of Comic-Con and it makes it challenging just managing all the traffic," police officials said. 

However, because the 'Zombie Walk' is not a permanent event, officers say they don't have all the details.

"We don't know where they're going, so we're going to be forced to react to it. If we have to close things down to make everyone safe we'll do so," police said.
