Zombie Car Crash Creates Rescue Confusion

By Tanya Roth, Esq. | Last updated on

Just one more reason the undead should not be permitted to drive. A car accident involving a group of zombies caused confusion and consternation Friday, July 19, near the city of Portland, Oregon. Portland locals, although living in a city known for weird and wonderful residents, were openly freaked out by the survivors of the accident sporting bloody wounds and torn clothes. One would think they would be used to strange sights in the home of such local favorites as Voodoo Doughnuts, but the crash caused concern, nonetheless.

The joke was on bystanders and others, though, according to Thaindian News. The Portland Police Department reported that the car involved swerved through the eastbound lanes of I-84, before rolling over and coming to a rest upside-down in the middle of the freeway. There were about five people in the car who were taken to the hospital, but police believe some may have fled on (rotting) foot to avoid consequences. Which exact consequences are not clear from reports, it is really not against the law for zombies to drive. Unless of course they have been drinking.

Fortunately, despite rescue workers initial concern when they saw the ravaged condition of the crash survivors, no consequences, legal or otherwise have been reported from the confusion resulting from the undead accident victims. Reports confirm that all car crash victims actually remain un-undead. reported, not surprisingly, that the accident victims were on their way to a costume party when the single-car wreck happened, according to local KGW-TV. Portland Police Sergeant Greg Stewart told the news station, "We're glad that everyone is alive, despite being 'undead.'"
