Green car has a green light and is waiting to make a u-turn at an intersection where it's permitted. Orange car had a red light and is waiting to make a right turn at the intersection. Once traffic clears, both cars proceed to make their turns simultaneously. Due to the sharp turning radius, green car is unable to turn into the closest lane and instead goes into the far lane where orange car is turning.
Part of me thinks both cars are at fault, since any turning movement requires you to make sure the movement can be made in safety. Thoughts?

I think the car having the green light will always trump the car proceeding through a red.
Former Ontario Police Officer. Advice will become less relevant as the time goes by !
Now to deal with the HTA. Depending on the intersection, there may be a circumstance where the green car has an advanced left turn and the orange vehicle may have a green arrow to the right.
I wouldn't be charging the orange car unless they failed to comply with a right on red turn.
This is one where the insurance company will take their pound of flesh.
