The cyclist was in the bike lane on the right. The truck was in the roadway travel lane and was slowing to turn on to Whitford. He put his turn signal on and started to make the turn. The cyclist attempted to pass him on the right as the truck was starting his turn and the two collided.
Now, bicycles are considered vehicles and must follow all vehicle laws...just like cars. In this case, the bicycle attempted to pass a vehicle on the right...in an intersection...as the vehicle was turning. These 3 factors combined are a recipe for disaster obviously and put the contributing factors for the accident on the bicyclist. The bike lane does not mean that the bicyclist can ignore traffic law due to the fact that they ride in that lane. They still are bound to see their way clear before crossing over the intersection. Compare it to a vehicle passing on the right and then attempting to pull back into the lane as you are making a right turn. There were 4 independent witnesses, and the witnesses statements and evidence left on both vehicles all support the finding of fault. In this incident the fault is clear and the correct finding was made by the Officer.
