Right of Way and Intersections

This case involved a car that pulled out onto a rural divided highway. The investigating officer concluded that the car had been crossing the street at the intersection. Based on witness testimony, vehicle damage and skidmarks it was apparent the car had pulled from a convinience store driveway and had intended to turn around at the intersection. The driver of the car didn't use the left turn lane and the truck driver didn't stop in time to avoid the collision. It is important to be caucious when approaching intersections. On rural roads with high speed limits it is especially important. Either driver in this case could have avoided the collision had they been carefully watching the traffic around them.
