Here are a few quotes from a story in the UK press. Sounds like it's a tough intersection to navigate even for those familiar with it...
We think that one of the contributing factors was the unfamiliarity of the driver with the area.
The vehicle they collided with was a heavy duty Ford pick up truck driven by a local man who said that the vehicle pulled right in front of him and there was nothing he could do.
Florida locals were quick to point out the dangers of the spot in Titusville - blaming bushes from blocking visibility.

"You have to get part way into the oncoming lane to see if you can continue turning."
