Unfortunately, a familiar area kept its first place title from 2013: The corner of Harvey Street and Sternberg Road (on the border of Norton Shores and Fruitport Township) took the No. 1 spot with 44 total crashes in 2014. With busy shopping and the US-31 interchange nearby, it’s not surprising to see many crashes in the area. Only five of the 44 car accident resulted in injury.

Getty Street and Laketon Avenue in Muskegon came in at a distant second place with 32 auto accidents overall.

But Apple Avenue in Muskegon Township took both first and second place for most injury/fatality accidents, with nine occurring at Apple Avenue and Sheridan Road and eight at Apple Avenue and Quarterline Road in 2014. Again, please use caution in these areas.

Let our lawyers know what you think. Do you drive through these intersections? Why do you think they’re so dangerous?
