Re: Hit in Someone's Blindspot
It sounds as if you made a left turn from ... where? From a driveway? A cross street?
Was this at an intersection?
If across other lanes of traffic, was the center a single set of double yellow lines? A pair of such double yellow lines set apart a foot or more? Something else?
Key will be the area of impact. It is possible that SHE was in the lane, and you were not. You have an obligation to yield until it is safe to turn. But, without knowledge of where you were turning from, and the nature of the street you were turning ON to, it's harder to say what code section might have been violated.
