I was referring to the photo, and not his sketched paths. I was more interested in seeing the actual roads involved, and disregarded his "flight paths". If you disregard his assumptions of the point of the crash you can still see what I'm speaking of, based on the actual info, with the truck going straight as the cyclists were crossing it's path. Possibly, he can edit his post showing the correct tracks and crash location.
BTW- I don't know about out west, but here it's not all that rare to have similar car/car crashes where one is turning left across a divided highway, both in broad daylight and at night.

affected the way these fatalities are reported in the news and investigated by the police.
the corrosive effect it's had on police accident investigations in car vs bike renders almost
all the statistics you see quoted on these events of questionable validity...yet a lot of the
decisions being made on a remedy use these same statistics. It's very discouraging.

Ok four full days of this arguing and handwringing is enough.
My sympathies to the families and friends of the victims, may they rest in peace.
