The guy that is turning is at fault, but I can't say the guy driving with the cam was not careless. He changed lanes at the last minute to pass the guy turning in front of him, so the guy that hit him probably saw no one coming and began to turn as the driver with the cam switched lanes and tried to bolt through.

It's an unfortunate event, if the person with the cam slowed down a bit when changing lanes he might have seen the other guy coming.

Not sure, seems a little careless on both parties involved.

I could be wrong, but thats my understanding of the law...
I think it's somewhere in between the two. Right of way was to the car in front of the OP's boy. After he makes his right turn, the window for a left turn has closed as the OP's boy is approaching the intersection.

Dude turning left was already attempting the turn while the car ahead was turning right. On top of that the driver does a very quick lane change without losing speed. Likely an unsafe move charge against the OP's boy and failure to yeild on a left turn against the white van/SUV.
