If we find out she tried to squeeze out of that small space for a fact, then we know the reason she hit the LEO was because she was shot and lost control. The LEO was not in that small space, he was in the corner between fence and building.
How wide do you see that alley as being? # of feet? Anyone?
From pix, if a (full-size?) LE vehicle is parked (more or less) centered in alley and in front of stolen car,
do you think there was enough room for stolen car to drive past it? On either side?
Link to pic supporting this?
