You’d be surprised at the intersections on our attorneys’ lists of the worst spots for fender benders – and injuries
As the 10th-most populated county in Michigan, Saginaw certainly sees its share of car crashes and busy traffic. So today our lawyers are providing two lists of dangerous intersections in Saginaw County.
The first has the locations where you’re most likely to be involved in an auto accident, and it’s based upon total numbers of motor vehicle crashes. These areas may be due to badly designed infrastructure or heavy traffic, but often include a large number of fender benders where fortunately, no one was hurt.
Our list second list has the intersections where an investigating police officer noted an injury or death.
Both lists are based upon the latest crash data from the Traffic Crash Reporting Unit of the Michigan State Police.
