This morning I witnessed an accident involving a sheriff's deputy. I was at a red light, in the left turn lane at a very busy intersection. The deputy, at a green light, was waiting to turn left. I was facing North, he was facing West, waiting to turn South. The 3 oncoming lanes (East-bound) were almost bumper to bumper and the two inner lanes (the two lanes closest to him), were stopped completely with some cars actually in the intersection. He proceeded to turn and as he was clearing the first two lanes, a compact pickup truck came FLYING in to the intersection, hitting him at full speed, broadside. She hit him so hard, he went up on the two left side tires and almost hit me. Thankfully he saw that about to happen, jerked his wheel to set the vehicle back down, and then once down, swerved to avoid me. It was some pretty amazing driving! Anyway, me and a buddy at work were debating who's fault we thought it was. Obviously there's a failure to yield issue, but what about her speed? I assume the trooper who wrote it up could see the sideways skidmarks from the deputy's vehicle, showing how hard the impact was. What do you guys think?
