A mate of mine has recently been involved in a minor car accident. He was driving along a main road which had a buslane to the left. He was driving in the normal right hand lane.
He indicated to turn left to enter a turning on his left. At this point the bus lane ended and then started again just after the left turn. Just as he turned in and moved to the left another car came speeding up the bus lane (it was during the permitted hours of use) and they collided.
Just wondering who is at fault in this accident, from an insurance perspective??
Bear in mind that the bus lane had only started about 5-10 meters before the left turning and before that it was single lane traffic.
He says he checked his mirror a few seconds before turning and there were no cars coming. This other person must've been a couple of cars back and when the bus lane started they accelerated hard and undertook everyone who had moved across into the normal right hand lane.
Here is a drawing to show what happened:
And here is an actual photo taken from just past the turning (my mate's car is the white arrow, and the other person is the yellow arrow)...
