Who is at fault for crossing the double yellow lane and coming back over to my lane?

by Laura

I was following a car and in front of him was a dump truck.

The truck turned right and the car in front of me went into the passing lane of oncoming traffic (we did not have a passing lane).

As he was in the lane a deer came across the street and he came back over into my lane and we collided. His rear passenger corner and my drivers side front corner.

The police said it was his fault because he left his lane. But his insurance company is trying to get me to accept blame because I was behind him. Who is at fault? Please help!



Well, it is very difficult to determine fault without more facts. The bottom line is that both drivers have some duties here. The first driver cannot leave the lane like that. You had to conserve your distance from the other vehicles.

Both drivers violated those duties.

We hope this helps,

Good luck
