This morning a Comic-con fan camping for the Twilight panel was struck by a car when she was crossing the street in front of the San Diego Convention Center and died at the hospital.
The woman was in a crosswalk and had a red light when she tried to run across Harbor toward the convention center about 9:20 a.m., said police Sgt. Ron Glass.

I have a special connection with the campers. One of the fun things to cover at Comic-con is the camping and her group was the one who I spoke with yesterday. I tweeted a photo of the group and it was the last thing she tweeted. https://twitter.com/mad4hugh
I can tell you that she loved events like Comic-con because of the people in the line camping with her. They all travel around the world enjoying Twilight events.
After the accident I spoke with her new friends who quickly became close friends and I also spoke with the San Diego Mayor.
My condolences to her family and friends.
