In brief: Car fatally strikes Comic-Con attendee

From Wire Reports
 

San Diego – A Comic-Con fan was fatally injured Tuesday when she was hit by a car on her way to wait in line for a “Twilight” panel at the San Diego Convention Center.

The 53-year-old woman ran into the middle of Harbor Drive and tried to stop in her tracks but it was too late, said San Diego Police Lt. Andra Brown. The 67-year-old driver who hit her cooperated with investigators and will not be cited, Brown said.

Pilot’s odd behavior ‘psychotic disorder’

Lubbock, Texas – A psychologist testified that a JetBlue Airways pilot who screamed about religion and terrorists during a flight had “a brief psychotic disorder” due to lack of sleep, according to a transcript of the trial obtained by the Associated Press on Tuesday.

A judge found Clayton Osbon not guilty by reason of insanity during a brief and unpublicized trial earlier this month in Texas. Osbon had been charged with interference with a flight crew for his behavior on a March 27 flight from New York to Las Vegas.
