A Twilight fan has been killed in a fatal car accident whilst camping outside Comic-Con in the hope of seeing Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and the rest of the movie’s cast.

‘Our thoughts and condolences go out to the victim’s family and friends. She will be respectfully remembered this Thursday (July 12) in Hall H.’
