I was involved in an accident this morning in which a vehicle in the right hand lane making a right hand turn swerved into the left hand lane in front of me (making a "wide" turn, I suppose) and though I tried to stop, I hit the left side of their rear bumper with my motorcycle. The driver claims he did not drift into the left lane at all. A witness said that while she did not see the accident (she was traveling two cars behind me- the car behind me at time of accident did not remain at the scene), she knows I was in the left lane and not going fast prior to the accident. There was no damage to the vehicle I hit (only a few marks on the plastic of the bumper), but approx. $1500 in damage to my bike. Police did not issue any tickets or place fault on either party at the scene.
