If each branch evolves deterministically what can be said about a branch that splits into two branches?

I will try to give an example so the question can be understood better. For instance if my car is on the crossroad and I can go straight, turn left or turn right the MWI will say that all those possibilities/events occur. But before the branching in 3 separate branches, there was my car and the environment around it at some present state at time t=0. So considering determinism, if we knew all the factors in relation with the car and the environment at time t=0 we could predict the future and we would get only one outcome. But instead we get three. So my question is, at time t=0, is there a single state which splits into three branches and how is it possible since the state should evolve deterministically into a single state or are there hidden factors which allow determinism to occur independently at all three worlds?

Thanks in advance
