Blue truck trying to catch the tail end of a green left turn signal
hits it when it turns red and is out in the middle of the
intersection. A motorcycle coming fast off the redlight nails the
blue truck dead in the center of the vehicle when they meet in the
intersection.

I saw the whole thing unfold as I was waiting for the
green on the other side of the stret.

Exhibition of speed, crunching metal and the motorcyclist bouncing off the side of the truck.

I took out my camera and started snapping pictures because the idiots
started moving the motorcycle from the intersection before the
police got there. I rolled up the guy that got hit and handed him my
card and told him that I saw everything, I got pictures so give me a call if you need a statement.
If I were him I would very much like the pics; they could make his case.


As of yet, no calls. I am hoping the guy didnt lose my card or
something.

The blue truck is the one that hit the motorcycle.

a lowered Shelby Durango. Lots of mass in that one. But I thought you said he was trying for a left turn light. If that skid mark is from the truck, then he went straight. Or am I missing something?
He was coming from the west to turn left (north). Its a Shelby.onespeed

The sequence of events you witnessed is probably more important.
