Plaintiff made a prima facie showing of entitlement to summary judgment on the issue of liability. Plaintiff was driving in the right lane when defendant Holmes, who was driving a tractor trailer in the lane to plaintiff's left, attempted to merge into plaintiff's lane when his lane ended, at which point the tractor trailer struck plaintiff's vehicle (see Williams v New York City Tr. Auth., 37 AD3d 827 ; Vehicle and Traffic Law § 1128[a]). In opposition, defendants failed raise a triable issue of fact as to comparative negligence on the part of plaintiff (see Neryaev v Solon, 6 AD3d 510 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
