According to AAA, 55 million people are expected to take to the roads, rails and skies during Thanksgiving week. But three big storms could slow your roll to grandma's house. People need to read BART's rules and abide by them, not just read text messages or Facebook postings.
The following explanation is consistent with the laws cited for both Illinois in this question and Ontario the linked question :. The rules for the first turn are the same as for any left turn: The vehicle must have the right of way. This can be because the vehicle has a left turn light, or because the vehicle has entered the intersection and can complete a left turn without impeding opposing traffic. The rules for the second turn are the same as for any left turn from an intersection: If an opposing vehicle referencing now the cross-street can go straight or turn right, then the vehicle turning left must yield.
In the scenario described: The opposing vehicle could not go straight because it had a red light and was not in the intersection.

I'm not sure if these facts are relevant, but I'll include them just in case: If there had been an accident, the u-turner would have struck the left side near the back end of the right-turner's vehicle, but fortunately stopped in time. The right-turner got there first. The u-turner was on a 4 lane road 2 lanes per direction and turned into the right lane which was the same lane the right-turner turned into. However, I doubt the u-turner's vehicle could have turned tight enough to end up in the left lane, even if it was attempted.
