The author of this article is putting a lot of speculation into the meaning of "about 500 feet". Is that plus or minus 10 feet? Plus or minus 200 feet? Based on the damage the the car, the positions where the victim was hit and where he landed are likely some distance apart. Was he hit in the crosswalk and dragged 200 feet to where he was found?

yah ass/u/me, in that detailed report, more detailed than I've seen here at the Voice, they forgot to mention he was dragged 200 feet. Of course they did. And when they said he was hit about 500 feet from the nearest intersection, they really meant 300 feet. Yyyep.
Time for bed.

The car was traveling about 80 feet / second. 200 feet of travel after the impact would take only 2.5 seconds.
