Looked like the car was turning left, not just chilling.

In VA, the driver of the car might be contributorily negligent for not yielding the right of way, and the rider would also be contributorily negligent for speeding wherein each pays for the damages to their own vehicle. The driver's lawyer would probably try to flip this and say that since the rider was so egregiously reckless that the driver could not have predicted him to come flying through and that the driver made reasonable accommodations for oncoming traffic.

Not sure how it works in FL though, but since it's the Sheriff's department that released the video, I'm guessing the biker was found to be at fault.
