Dude is lucky. While I realize that I would have been PARTIALLY at fault in this accident, not fully. "Every case is determined on its own particular facts. Furthermore, if it can be established that the straight-through driver was speeding, ran a red light, or COULD HAVE SAFELY STOPPED ON THE YELLOW LIGHT, then that driver may bear some portion of fault for the accident. This will typically require evidence." Yeah, that's why I have a God damn dashcam.
