the car driver or the cyclist at fault. Did the car driver not see the cyclist, OR did the cyclist fail to observe the road rules. !!!!!!!!!

Never a cyclists fault

Sorry did I miss the sentence saying the driver was at fault, this is a traumatic time for those involved, but I forgot cyclists are never in the wrong!!

In highschool, drives just go right through stop signs, same intersection both times. Each time, the driver stopped to see if I was OK then scarpered without leaving any details for police.
