Jul 12 2010Wait -- Is It Halloween Already?: Car Full Of Zombies Crashes, Freaks Out Witnesses


A car full of people dressed as zombies crashed Friday night on Interstate 84 in downtown Portland, Oregon, much to the, "HOLY SHIT, THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!" of witnesses.

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'," Sgt. Stewart said, referring to the costumes.

While everyone in the car was taken to the hospital, Stewart said crews are investigating the possibility that more people were in the car at the time of the crash but fled the scene on foot.

Of course they did. Of course a car full of zombies crashed and several of the undead fled on foot. I mean, it only makes sense. I'm just thankful it wasn't a car full of clowns. Now THAT would have been a grisly scene. Get it? Because there's forty clowns but only five seat belts!

Thanks to Liz, who wouldn't hesitate to plow through a group of zombies running around in the middle of the highway.

Pics or it didnt happen

Didn't you already post this in the past?

I would like to see pics to im from portland and havent heard anything about this.Plus @2 you are awesome


I don't know for some reason I though the part about some zombies fleeing the scene of the accident was hilarious... instead of suspicious, hmm?


Can you imagine the 40 year old soccer mom's reaction as she hops out of her mini-van to help with this accident only to discover a bunch of moaning zombies, slowly waking up and trying to walk towards her?

the sign should read:
Caution! Zombies at work!

Z's are my natural enemy. If I'd'a been there, I'd now be in a jail cell arguing it was manslaughter at best...

FAKE!! Zombies can't drive!

That's nothing.

In Jamaica, thirteen people died in a Starlet when it crashed. How thirteen people fit in the car, IDK?

A crusty copse of corpulent corpses copulating.

Unruly undead unanimously undermine uniformity, undoubtedly

Okay it actually happened. Check:


I am from Portland and yes, this sort of thing happens around here. That's why all Portlanders have a zombie apocalypse contingency plan, or ZACP. Not joking. We're ready for that shit.

stop slacking GW >.<"

that would have been morbidly hilarious if some redneck blasted the heads off a couple of them with a shotgun

Remember, Friends don't let friends drive dead.


Cosplay, cosplay, fucking COSPLAY, amiright? No? Well I've seen this story posted on other sites and keep seeing them called "zombie cosplayers" on their way to a zombie-themed party. Thank you GW, for not being a buzzword spewing deutschbag.

I'm just bitter, because I dropped out of junior high so I never got invited to a frat house toga cosplay.

13 People in a Car

Thats nothing,

I saw once a Family of 5 mexicans, 2 adults, 2 children 1 baby In a FREAKING MOTORCYCLE!!!

And i saw 45 Mexicans get out of a VAN ONCE!!!

about the zombies, OMG, It would be hilarious if they were trying to get help and people just started running them over
I just wonder how real their costumes looked because if they looked really fake then FAIL, but if they look real I think someone could have killed them

thanks for the 5 year old post

Pretty sure this picture is as old as the Zombie Myth itself :(

zombies aren't real.
go away fad.


Its the new twilight

@21, 22:
You are freaking morons that don't even bother to read the post. This happened on the 9th of July. GW used an old picture because the news didn't have any images to post. Noobs.

This happened in Austin, TX.... not Portland, OR. Students at the nearby UT campus hacked into the traffic control center's wireless remote for their construction signs.

This was about 2 years ago.

Now to decide whose team these guys are on.
