A man hit by a car early Monday morning outside a Lawrence bar has been discharged from a Kansas City hospital.

A spokesman with Kansas University Hospital said Alex E. Bryan, 24, of Buhler, was discharged from the hospital Tuesday.

Police said Bryan was struck by a car just before 2 a.m. Monday in the 600 block of Crestline Drive — near the Ranch bar — and the vehicle then fled, heading west on Sixth Street. Police are still searching for the car, described as a silver Nissan Maxima driven by a white male.

Witnesses told police the accident happened as Bryan was crossing Crestline and that he may have stumbled or fallen down in the street prior to being struck by the car.

so was he laying in the street or was he lying in the street?

The proper way to say it would be that he "was lying in the street when the car hit him," if that's what occurred.

????????????? "Witnesses told police the accident happened as Bryan was crossing Crestline and that he may have stumbled or fallen down in the street prior to being struck by the car."

Very obvious the medical evaluation for this person was way off; having to go to KU Med then being dismissed one day later? Crazy.

It amazes me that this story is about a man being hit by a car (that has yet to be brought to justice), and you idiots are discussing proper word usage and potholes...

It happened on the side of the street / curb area, he was tying his shoe, he wasn't at the ranch and wasn't "stumbling" drunk. The car had peeled out in accelleration turning a corner and hit him while he was close to the curb.
