    Also, walked past [the speaker] / walked past [some unmentioned location].

    Examples:
    The woman walked by the red car.
    The woman walked past the red car.
    The woman walked near the red car.
    The woman passed by the red car. (that is, on foot)

    This would be a comment from a witness in a statement for some type of investigation. The witness is obviously trying to be as precise as possible with his description of what happened.
