No fault has been determined?!?!
Seems pretty obvious to me that the car turned left in front of the motorcycle making it the car drivers fault!
Unfortunately it happens all the time and the police don’t write any tickets for right of way violation or failure to keep right.
Hope the rider is ok and I hope the car has enough insurance to pay for the damage they caused.

This article isn’t correct, the motorcyclist is literally on life support with brain damage and IF he survives will likely never walk again and will be in a vegetative state for the rest of his life. He’s 24. So yeah, “non-life threatening” is not accurate. I’m glad the driver of the car is uninjured but I would really like to see some kind of street cam footage to determine what happened because this is just unreal.
