Clarification of the crash from the police report diagram, below.

The oncoming truck turned left across the Tesla's path. Seems like a pretty big visual target for a human to miss. Its "visual mass" would have grown rapidly (much moreso than a car's) as it began to turn.

The Tesla was headed east at 4:40 PM, so it wasn't driving into the sun.
