The same thing happened to me two weeks ago.  It is very similar to what you have described. Witness says driver who pulled out in front of me had a green arrow.  I had a green light that changed to yellow as i entered the intersection.  When it turned yellow for me i was past the point of no return. I remember the light was still yellow for me when we collided in middle of intersection.  Would like to talk to you about the situation heres email theboot@textfree.us

Traffic collision reconstructionist with 19 years of traffic collision investigation experience as an LAPD officer. I can answer questions about traffic collisions with vehicles, motorcycles, pedistrians, bicycles, and commercial vehicles. Especially cases of low speed collisions and injury potential. I can answer questions about the vehicle code (specific for Ca and in general for other states) but I am not a driving instructor nor a vehicle mechanic. You need to talk to someone else about these issues.
