Ok, so I was unable to stop for a yellow light and proceeded with caution, halfway thru the intersection driver turned left in front of me and I was unable to avoid hitting this vehicle. Police officer advised that i was not at fault, but witness stated that the light was red (which is false) so officer issued me a ticket, my insurance adjuster is telling me that I am at fault ? I always thought that a person turning left against traffic had to make sure it was safe to do so before turning, am I wrong???

I saw this rule on line with illustration and according to this diagram I am driver of vehicle A. So does this mean that even though I was ticketed for going thru a red light I am not at fault for this collision?

If the information is that you disobeyed a red light then you would be vehicle B and at fault.
