AN accident blackspot which has seen several spectacular crashes has been improved as much as it can be, say highway bosses.
Another crash happened at the notorious Emley Moor crossroads on Wednesday - at the place where a bus ploughed through a cottage wall.
After that smash - in September, 1999 - Kirklees Council imposed a 40mph limit.
It also put up protective bollards to protect the damaged house at the junction of Westfield Lane with Common Lane and Windmill Hill Lane.
In the crash at 5.30pm on Wednesday a silver Ford Focus and a Mitsu- bishi L200 collided at the junction.
The Mitsubishi overturned and the woman driver was trapped inside for a while until rescued by police.
She does not want to be named, but wants Kirklees to do far more to improve safety at the site.
She also wants traffic lights there.
She said: "One resident was lovely, welcomed me into her home and made me a cup of tea.
"But she has a reflective jacket she puts on to deal with accidents as there are so many. Those crossroads are so unsafe they are a chicken run."
The Ford was badly damaged at the front, but the driver scrambled clear.
People living nearby were amazed neither driver was injured or even killed. They also say they live in fear of further bad smashes.
They want further safety measures implementing, possibly high-visibility stop signs or even traffic lights.
But Kirklees roads safety manager Chris Platts said the council could only bring in safety measures, including stop signs, if it stuck to rigid Government rules.
He said: "We have looked at the possibility of stop signs, but the junction did not meet the rules.
"One suggestion we made was to close one of the side roads to traffic, but residents did not want that."
