Deadly Fashion

Wow, death by high heels.
Two women who escaped from their car when it became stuck on train tracks in Riverside overnight were killed when the train hit the vehicle and dragged it over them as they walked away, apparently struggling in their high heels, authorities said today.
Gee, I previously blamed high heels for traffic congestion, injuries and climate change. I never expected them to be immediately deadly. I would have expected people to take off their shoes and make a run for it. What an awful way to go.

I can't help wondering if there is more to this story and that the police find it easier to blame the shoes than go into the details of the accident.

  1. They were walking (running?) on gravel which is probably why they didn't take off their shoes. It's not even clear if they were aware of their danger.

    I always wear running shoes for airports and flying.

    Are you feeling better?
