Who is at fault in a multi-car collision at a red light?

The person at fault is the one that ran the red light or the amber light. Rules of the road are .... if you are already out in the intersection to make a turn on a green light and the light goes amber and then possibly turns red, you are inside the law, but, if you race out into the intersection on an amber light and it turns red and you get hit, it's your fault. EXAMPLE: A vehicle screamed out into the intersection on an amber light, then suddenly the light turned red and the oncoming traffic started up and hit that vehicle then it's the person who raced out into the intersection.
