New video of the 2014 crash through a crowd outside San Diego's Comic-Con convention was played in court Tuesday as the driver responsible for the crash faces felony reckless driving.
Matthew Pocci faces a felony charge of reckless driving in connection with the July 26, 2014 crash near the San Diego Convention Center.
Pocci was behind the wheel of a car that drove through a crowd of pedestrians during the “Zombie Walk."
Both sides agree he was the driver behind the wheel, given the extensive videos and photos of the event; whether he seemed scared or impatient is under review.
Defense Attorney Ashby Sorensen said people in the crowd motioned for Pocci to drive forward after he sat at the intersection for several minutes.
Pocci, who is deaf, argues that he was afraid of a crowd of people gathered for the parade at 2nd and Island Avenues. He said his passengers, including a child, were scared of the crowd.
In an earlier interview with NBC 7, Pocci signed using ASL that the crowd was out of control and pounded on his car, trying to get inside his car.
