Bike Accidents

I was a freshman in college riding my bike alongside the curb in the middle of campus. I had a green light at an upcoming intersection. A car driving alongside me was making a right turn, and at the last second he saw me and slammed on his brakes so he wouldn't run me over. I'd seen him as well, so I'd hit my brakes so as not to be run over. A split second later, the guy who stopped-short was rear-ended by someone not paying attention. We sat, him in his crunched car and me on my bike looking at each other for a moment. I wasn't sure whose fault the accident was, so I pedaled off looking the other way. Turned out to be the right move.
