Two Kelowna men fall victim to fashion

Two Kelowna men were injured when a car drove into them outside an area nightclub.

Red stilettos may make a festive statement at area nightclubs, but a weekend smash-up indicates more sensible shoes may be called for when the party winds down.

Const. Kris Clark says Mounties responded to a report that two men had been hit by a car while standing in front of  Sapphire Nightclub,at 1:38 a.m. Saturday.

“A grey Honda Civic drove up onto the curb right near the entrance to the club and into a crowd of people standing outside,” Clark said.

“A 21-year-old man and a 26-year-old man suffered non-life threatening injuries in the crash but it was certainly fortunate that more were not injured.”

The woman behind the wheel, a 28 year old from Kelowna, was co-operative with police once they arrived, and was not under the influence of alcohol. Nor did she know the two injured parties.

Clark surmised, however, that she was unable to properly apply the brake due to the height of her heels.
