  1. “Detectives say a truck was attempting to make a turn into a business parking lot before it struck a pedestrian. Reports say the pedestrian looked like they were lying in the parking lot.”
    .
    The report in the police blotter is clearer:
    “It was determined that a Chevrolet Silverado was attempting to turn into the parking lot of a business in the 3500 block of Austin Bluffs Parkway when it struck a pedestrian who was lying in the parking lot.”
    In the KRDO rewrite, it wasn’t clear if the pedestrian was lying in the parking lot PRIOR TO the crash or afterwards.

    Sounds like the pedestrian may have been impaired.
