When they look at the video footage of Cal's crash the two cars are in the wrong position. The cars are positioned as if they stopped at the moment of impact. This would only happen if they were both going very slowly. Cal was going slow, having just started again after waiting for the light. The other car was going much faster because his light was already green. They hit hard enough that they would have bounced leaving Cal's car close to the other side of the intersection on the same side Cal came from. The other car would have been knocked slightly off course by the impact but would have continued in the same general direction, ending up on the far side of the road from where Cal's car would have ended up.

one thing to add to morpheusatloppers' review
3 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, i did the research and found my information was dated. Originally, the opticom was a device that controlled the signals via a pulsating strobe light. of course, that strobe light would be incredibly obvious, which would of course wreck the plot line. And just as morpheusatloppers said, going "all green" would be "a bad thing" (tm).

reviewing the product brochure, it appears that the new RADIO-enabled optimcom does indeed control the intersections via radio, taking the gps position of the emergency vehicle into account to determine which green(s) to enable. while i completely agree with morpheusatloppers that an "all green" situation would be sub-optimal, the product brochure for IntelliGreen clearly shows a situation where an emergency vehicle, leaving the station, causes a four-way green. However, it does not describe this situation, so it might be just a poor choice of graphics colors used to indicate traffic flow.

common sense (which Lie to Me sometimes causes us to put on the shelf) would dictate that if anything, the opticom would change signals to all red (the safest option) and let the emergency vehicle negotiate through the stopped traffic (yes, the point of the opticom is to cause traffic to continue to flow in the direction the emergency vehicle is traveling, but i'm just positing another possible configuration).

all that aside (and here's the slight spoiler), this is yet another episode where Cal cock-blocks Emily's current beau, in Cal's inimitable style of course (the w@nker ).
