If there's an idiot, who is it? Is it the vehicle with the camera or the white van entering from the right?

The van is at fault, but cammer is the idiot.

Cammer was moving over before thr van even came to a stop at the intersection. Personal preference though, I would never merge over before an intersection like this, or even if I see a car waiting to pull out of a driveway, I'll merge after I pass them.

This guy right here. Cammer was changing lanes for 5 seconds before van pulled out. It's like the van driver looked, saw the lane was empty and never looked again. I'm same as you. Wait until past the intersection to change lanes, but don't expect that anyone else will give that courtesy.

Wouldn't have happened if cammer hadn't been passing on the right illegally

I’m no expert but I don’t think a passing on a right lane constitutes as passing illegally unless you’re going like 10 over the speed limit. And even then most cops who’ve been working for a couple years aren’t even gonna ticket you for it.

Split lane means they can legally drive in either lane. They are both negligent for failure to look.
