But the law is meaningless if you have no means to enforce it. I was in a similar incident and the judge was not interested in my photos or the law.
If you escaped with your health consider yourself lucky and avoid court if at all possible, it's a waste of time. The police are government employees, the judge is a government employee.

yeah i hate camry even more now . she hit me from the driver side. the lady was not a license driver, she got ticket for that tho, and i forgot to mention as i pulled out i look right and left again maybe as i looked right, she whipped the turn without slowing down much then by the time i look left she was already coming. and i just got it last week from my dad he gave to me as a gift so it was still under his name and the insurance too. i will post pics
I think there may be more to it, but witnesses would be needed. Sometimes the right of way goes to the person who gets there first, but then again left turning vehicles usual need to yield to everyone. On another hand, if she had sufficient time to avoid the accident but didn't, it may be her fault. Of course with that one you would need several witnesses saying she apparently "intentionally" hit you by not avoiding the accident when she easily could have.
All I will say is that here in California The crash would be your fault. You are entering traffic onto a through street which has the right of way, controlled or uncontrolled. You must yield to all traffic close enough to constitute a hazard. The speed of the other car does not factor unless it was so high that sight distance testing is ness. and you probably would not survive that kind of crash. The speed and licence status would be an associated factor only

older and aged frontier versus a presumably newer camry...the front end core support i imagine would be stronger than the rear suspension and driveline of any small pickup of the age.
take into consideration the location of impact too. the rear end at a corner impact is the most sensitive location for damage. im sure smashing anyones front bumper into anyones tire would cause some sort of rear axle mangling.
A few of decades ago a fellow driving a big 4 door Lincoln sedan land yacht turned into his office right in front of my girlfriend (now wife). She was doing the speed limit (35mph) and had no time to react.
She was driving a Nissan Sentra (early 1980's model which weighed less than a ton) and slammed right into his passenger side quarter panel. The collision spun his car sideways and broke his axle as his car slid into the curb.
So I wouldn't be at all surprised that a Camry (which I'm guessing weighs at least a thousand pounds more than the old Sentra) would spin a light truck with enough violence to snap a few things.
Sucks for all involved, but one really shouldn't pull out in front of another vehicle (and then wonder who's at fault).
