Here’s the question:
Did this swerving cyclist just run a red light?
Look, Gentle Reader, and see that the ped’s light is green. Do you have enough information?

The answer is no you do not.
The answer is the ped would have been 100% at fault if the cyclist had ended up colliding with her. That’s CA law.
That’s the reason why the Chris Bucchere homicide investigators aren’t dwelling on whether he ran a red light just before killing pedestrian Sutchi Hui.
Look here, you can see the green light, the yellow light, the red light, the delay between the red light and the green WALK sign, and then finally, the green WALK sign:
Hey peds, guess what – you DON”T Always Have The Right Of Way.
People who tell you that you do always have the right of way are lying to you.
(For political reasons, I suppose.)
Now, who’s going to tell the peds of San Francisco to straighten up and fly right?
