I do know that Semis turning right (towing 40' trailers) will easily crush the front of a car. A TT? Not so easily.

Alright, I tried to hold off since I didn't want to hijack, but it's bugging the heck out of me. Where is that? The street signs and license plates suggest it's from North America, the street lights from the USA specifically, but the way the stop line is painted on the ground is confusing me. Why isn't there a stop line continued all the way to the curb? It's throwing me off from trying to reconstruct what possibly could have happened to cause that.

A quick search on googlemaps shows that to be an intersection at Flowing Wells Rd & Old Trail Rd. In Martinez Georgia.
It would appear from looking at the maps that the van pulling the TT was heading South on Flowing Wells and decided to make a right on to Old Trail, it appears he made the right from the lane for continuing South instead of the turn lane.

Thanks! Given the paintings on the ground, and the shape of the curbs, I'd say he was heading north, not south, and possibly turned right from the left turn lane. So, putting my speculation hat on (it's made of tin foil! ) I'd say the van wanted to go wide, crossed into the left turn lane in order to make the right hand swing. The crossover following him probably thought he had has signals reversed (if we was using any) and tried to go straight through thinking the van meant to go left being in a left turn lane.

Ok, I feel better now. Still, never seen an intersection with a stop line only for the turning lane like that.

Upon further examination I do concur, he was headed North, Southbound has a separate turn lane.
