      Steering over compensation thus causing car to spin …I dare say this was not a 55 mph accident ..appears to be far above posted limit with this much damage …
      I hope the drivers will recover … As well I hope the at fault driver learns from this ..

      How is the intersection dangerous? Are there trees or shrubs blocking line of site?…is it on a hill where it’s hard to see oncoming traffic?

      Or is it because drivers fail to stop, yield right of way, or regularly speed in that area?

        The intersection is dangerous because it’s on a hill. It is difficult to see traffic coming up the hill that are already at speed when trying to merge or cross the highway. It is also difficult for traffic to see cars looking to negotiate the intersection while already at speed on the highway.
