Brandan Muttitt and his co-worker Cody Thomson were walking back from lunch when they saw a white Audi coming out of the Harris Green Village parkade, attempting a left hand turn onto View Street.
“I turned around and I saw a car flying … we were about 20 feet away,” Thomson said. “The curb deflected the car away from us so it didn’t mount the curb and run straight into us, cause we were in the path.”
The collision occurred at approximately 2 p.m. and left both drivers as well as the staff of CEV Victoria, a vape shop at 940 View St., visibly shaken but uninjured.
