Hope the young lady will be ok. This is another one off those stupid junction on a road that is one junction stop, the next you have right of way, then the next stop. It's the same on St Leonard's Road. Very confusing if you don't know the roads or are not from here. They should be all right of way or all stop not a mix of both.

The roads are very clearly marked with junctions, and if you don't know the roads or are not from somewhere then you should be paying extra attention to the road markings!

However, I do hope that everyone involved will be ok, and there won't be any lasting damage.

Exactly this...

If you can't read a road by the markings, you shouldn't have a licence. Driving is not just the ability to move a car you know.
