The measured distance from the spot where Linthcome was standing according to witnesses to the inside, or right, end of skid mark is 37 feet. To outside, or left, skid mark, it is 43 feet. The officer emerged from the car from the passenger side. The distance from the "victim" to the curb on an angle toward the skid marks is 30 feet.
