Another car was coming in the opposite direction turning left and we collided who's the fault we were in front of a subdivision entrance
A: It cannot be determined from these facts alone. Information such as distance away will be relevant. It might have been your fault b
A: BOTH DRIVERS. You went behind the car turning left (in your direction) which made it difficult or impossible for the other car turning left to see you. You had the right-of-way because you were going straight. That said, you know that you are prohibited from passing on the right. Whether "the right" is an emergency lane, a parking lane, a shoulder, or a subdivision entrance, is irrelevant. You admit that it was an intersection and you admit that you passed on the right. Impliedly, you admit that you didn't look to see if the roadway was clear and it wasn't. As noted above, nobody can say whether the driver executing the left turn (that collided with you) forgot to look or simply didn't see you because you are behind the other car making a left turn. It is difficult to assign percentages but you are both at fault.
A: Additional details would be helpful. But at a glance, it looks like both of you are. In order for you to have been in a position exposed to an oncoming car, it's possible you crossed a double yellow line or other boundary not intended for lane change. Without seeing the site or police report, this is only a general speculation. I hope everyone involved is okay. Your respective carriers are probably going to sort this out, based on a more complete file that could include sketches, lane markings, video, police report, eyewitness testimony, and other possible details. Good luck
