Confusion on Intersections

Had an interesting conversation today with a driver concerning an almost accident at 3 roads (T) junction/intersection. Driver A is heading north across the top of the T and driver B heading towards the intersection from the bottom of the T. Driver B stops and then makes a turn unto the lane north lane in which Drive A is on. Drive A then swings away out of lane to avoid hitting Driver B. Both vehicles stop and Driver B is arguing telling Driver A that he should have stopped before proceeding across the intersection. Driver A says “are you mad? missing a few screws? I have the right of way! there is no stop sign here”. Driver B says "it had a sign before but due to a previous accident, it got hit down and was not yet replaced. You should know the road you're driving on". No one was injured, but who really was at fault?

When there is no markings (vertical or horizontal), the intersection should be treated as equal and the right-hand rule applies.
