Default Driving right-of-way question

Lets see if I can explain this right...

There is a main street going east/west and another street that goes north/south crosses it. The main street has no light/stop sign at the intersection but the crossing street has stop signs.

A car coming south is turning left on the main street. A car going north is going straight across the main street. Both have to stop at the main street to wait for traffic on the main street to clear. If the car turning left arrived before the car going straight, does it have the right-of-way?

I know the safe thing to do if I am crossing or turning onto the main street, but I never knew who actually had the right-of-way.

Hmmm..honestly..IDK...I know the driver going straight always have the right of way...but if you get there first..you have the right away...kinda like a 4-way stop. I have witness and been the turner where the turner was there first and still waiting til the other car crossed.

Yes, that's why I'm confused. The one arriving 1st has the right-of-away but if both get there at the same time the one going straight has the right-of-way...but does that apply on a road that is not a 4-way stop?

I wish we had Match Box cars so I could make a little road map.
 


I think that if they approach the intersection at the same time, the person going forward has the right-of-way.

hmmm, I'm trying to think if we have a road like that here and what I would normally do. I would assume that you treat it like a 4-way stop and the person who arrived first would go first. Then again...no one in my city seems to know who 4-way stops work!
