Re: “Popular local cyclist Kent Winberry dies from injuries in Durham traffic accident

I think this situation is easy to explain. The cyclist was doing everything correctly and following the law, the driver failed to yield right of way breaking the law. When a driver causes damages, injuries, or death from breaking the law, they are to be held accountable. Usually the defense is able to slither away and put blame on the cyclist/motorcyclist somehow and get away with it. This situation feels much more black and white and I hope you are wrong JE, or i will lose a lot more confidence in our justice system. Maybe the police officers and courts are able to relate to the driver more than the cyclist and that's why these cases end the way they do.

What about failure to yield right of way? A left-cross is exactly that and puts the driver at full responsibility. Felony Death by Vehicle fits the bill with the information available
