Is left turn at an intersection always at fault?

by Seeking Answer
(Ontario Canada)

Scenario - One driver was about to make a right turn into another lane and at the last minute change his mind and resume going straight. Another driver from opposite direction made a left turn and hit the driver that just decided to go straight rather than turn right.


Who's fault - the driver make a turning left at an intersection or the driver that was making a right turn and then changed his mind and go straight?

Fault Determination
