Why does this use forlader and not efterlader? I would have thought that, since they are leaving something, it should have been forlader

I have the same question :(

Just when I thought I had 'forlade"and 'efterlade' figured out, here comes this sentence and ruins everything.

Edit: Could it depend on how one interprets 'left': 1) "walked away from" -> '"forladt", 2) "dumped" -> "efterladt"?

Would vej not be acceptable to refer to the road?

is "i den gade" possible here?

Yes, it should also be accepted. I would use i den gade when talking about a small street surrounded by tall buildings
