Sticky left lane accident
sorry for the long read but i am looking down at the world right now
my very first accident happened and i am still shaken up and lost on what to do. I had an accident on victoria and kingsway and i was turning left coming from metro. There were three cars on the three lanes on the opposite direction. The light was yellow and it seems like all three cars were about to stop. The car in the middle lane went while the left and right stayed. I busted a left and bumped into another car. It was already yellow, and red when she was in the middle already. Damage was done to my hood and bumper.
Here is the sticky part. It was not my car so the car was insured on someone elses. The other car that I hit was a rental. *I had a friend in my shotgun and a few people in her car*. A witness actually came and parked behind MY car and gave me her phone number and name on a piece of paper (a 60-70 year old lady) and she left when i tried talking to her(striaght up ignored me). She even said that she was so glad that everyone was fine but kept hinting that she had back pains and started laughing..... :suspcious: like a full bullshit laugh
I do not know if I can do a payoff on the damages if the car is rental (avis). Is there a chance that I will ever win if I had an external witness who was NOT in either cars?? I do not want to bump up the insurance of the original cars owner but is it the last resort to claim??
all fingers point at me because my bro said that there is a new law that you must be behind the line when turning a left, you can no go past the line anymore. I do not know if that is true. Another person said that i am at fault, Another one said that I can get 50/50 with witness but what is the best solution??
the last thing i want to say is that the owner of the car that is damaged is not here at the moment so I want to repair it without touching his insurance
