Yesterday I was driving through an intersection under what I thought was a green light, only to find myself being hit by a car turning left into my lane (a middle lane that becomes a far right lane on the other side of the intersection). He said I was the one who ran the redlight. I honestly don't think I had a red light, or else it must have changed really fast... it is a tricky intersection where there is a right turn with a green light while the intersecting road is going left. There is a possibility that I mistook the green turning light for my light. :( Bottom line, I was in lala land. :( SO anyway, how much am I to blame for this accident? There WAS another lane that the driver could have gone into. He certainly had enough time to honk at me, but he claimed the road was slick and he could not stop in time to prevent hitting me (?!). My driver's side door was quite damaged, and he had some damage to his passenger side front and hood. It could have been worse, and thankfully no one was injured (we'll see if he decides to claim something later). I am just curious to know how the insurers will decide the level of fault, since he was the one that hit me but I got cited for running a red light, and how this might all go down. I have never had this kind of accident before. I have not had any citations in almost 5 years.
