Our attorneys list the worst locations in Flint, MI for motor vehicle accidents by total crashes and by the most injuries and deaths
Here’s the new publication of worst intersections in Flint. Our attorneys compiled the list using data from the Traffic Crash Reporting Unit of the Michigan State Police.
Below you will see two lists. The first list has data for total number of motor vehicle accidents in 2014. Keep in mind that total number is somewhat misleading in that many of these are minor car accidents and fender benders.
The second list is probably a better indication of what areas in Flint are most dangerous, as it only includes only Flint car accidents where a police officer noted injuries and/or fatalities in the crash investigation forms.
