Zombie Car Crash Confuses Paramedics

In Portland this past Friday, a car swerving through traffic rolled over and came to rest upside down. When paramedics arrived at the scene, they may have been alarmed to find that the passengers were covered in blood and gore – only to realize that a great deal of it was fake:

Sgt. Greg Stewart said people who witnessed the crash initially thought the victims’ injuries were much more serious, because of the zombie costumes.

“We’re glad that everyone is alive, despite being ‘undead’.”

The passengers were on their way to a party. The authorities were concerned that some of them may have fled the scene of the accident on foot, but as zombies, they likely didn’t get very far.

  1. So it happened in Portland, but the picture shows a vancouver police car… Am i the only one that noticed this?

    • I noticed. Not even a Vancouver car from MY 'Couve, but from the ridiculous one up North. How could they confuse -THAT Vancouver with Portland? 8-|

    • That's not a picture from the story itself; it's just an illustration. :) You wouldn't believe some of the interesting stuff you get when you search for "zombie" and "car" in flickr.
