I hope you weren't so wishy washy when making your statements to ICBC... have some self-confidence and tell them the truth, don't doubt yourself... light turned yellow, car turned in front of you, you tried to brake because of that but couldn't... you had the right of way... it's the other driver's job to clear the intersection before turning no matter what. I know people who have been the other driver and swear that the light was red but ICBC still said too bad to them, left turner has to ensure the intersection is clear... the only way out for the other driver is with a witness/dashcam.

argh... that's what I'm most afraid of.. The fact that he would go off on me when he's wrong, makes me think he'd run out and find a fake witness....
The witness saw the accident and gave us his info on site at the time of the accident. He just didn't bother returning any calls till 3 weeks after, which means his memory of the incident could've been a little hazey.

Hope it doesn't end like this for you, and you should claim any injuries if you are a bit hurt. A bruised knee or something might not seem bad at first, but it can get infected, shit like that lol.

I'm ok, was able to brake enough so that it wasn't too bad of an impact.
Well... Still on the search of a witness. *waits*

Not totalled, my front bumper fell off... But I was able to turn a bit n so most of the damage is on 1 side. Its not broke or anything. I think I have less damage then your car.

called ICBC today, supposedly the other side has a witness. Which they havent been able to reach yet... I know there was a pedestrian but she left before I was able to talk to her.
She's an older lady that was already giving me judgemental looks when I pulled over. I just hope she tells the truth that the light was YELLOW when it happened instead of looking after it happened and saying it was red. People tend to think they know what they saw when theyre prejudiced...

ughh... will post signs up this weekend...

that really sucks that no one stopped and gave you info as a witness, ive seen a few accidents and always stopped and gave the driver that was in the right my contact info so they dont get bent over, good karma so hopefully i get the same luck in the future.

trust me, this isnt the end of the world, life will go on.
