Creating a point based on distance from intersection

I have collision data I want to create from the California Highway Patrol Database SWITRs. In the database they have the closest intersection and the distance and direction from the intersection in which the collision occurred. We've typically geocoded the point to the nearest intersection for high level planning projects. I'd like to know if there is a simple way to create the point at it's exact location based on distance and direction for more detailed planning projects. Thanks.
