    I accelerated, as did the other cars at my light, however, being on a motorcycle, I was first out of the gate. A woman from the east/west bound intersection believed she still had the right to finish her left turn and not only did so, but made a wide (illegal I believe) left turn, turning across all 3 southbound lanes and completely cutting me off causing my front tire to collide with her rear, right bumper, knocking my bike over.
    You have been given some good advice regarding who was probably at fault so I wont repeat it, but here is some advice. Just because you can accelerate faster off the line than a car doesnt mean you should. Collisions occur most often at intersections. If you are a motorcycle you should be pausing and waiting for that red light runner.....even if they end up not running it. You struck her REAR bumper so you should have seen her coming. Take it from someone who rides .....always expect someone to run the light......it only delays you another second.
