At the intersection of Hunt Club Road and Conroy Road in Ottawa, Canada, a motorcyclist was fatally struck by a car. The incident took place on July 25, 2020 and was captured on a dashcam.
As the dashcam footage shows, the e-motorcyclist took a left hand turn, with which he cut off the oncoming passenger vehicle. The latter was not going hella fast, at least it doesn’t seem so to me. He was able to bring the vehicle to a stop within the dashcam’s field of view, and the place of impact also fit within it.
In my opinion, it was the motorcyclist’s duty to check whether the left turn was safe to take. Obviously, the light was green for both of them. But the biker just went like a woman expecting the world to yield because she’s coming through. Plus his helmet was fastened about as tightly as any dead Brazilian biker’s.
What do you guys think? Am I correct in my assumptions of guilt, or did I miss something there?
