Injured? Free Advice (800) 777-0028

Where in Jackson County are you most likely to be involved in a motor vehicle accident?

Our auto attorneys are providing the lists of the Jackson County roads with the most fender benders – and serious injuries

As a growing residential area and stop along I-94, Jackson County sees its share of car crashes and congested traffic. So today our attorneys are sharing new motor vehicle accident data to help alert drivers to the most dangerous areas in and around Jackson, MI.

Michigan Auto Law would like to thank the Traffic Crash Reporting Unit of the Michigan State Police for their assistance in compiling this information.

Below we have two lists. The first list covers total number of car accidents for the year 2014 in and around Jackson. It’s important to remember that total number is important, but also somewhat misleading as a higher number of these crashes are lower speed fender benders, with little or no personal injury reported to investigating police officers at the scene.

The second list shows the car accidents where an investigating police officer reported a serious injury or a fatality at the scene.

A new intersection took the title of first place this year, as the corner of Airport Road and O’Neill Drive/Boardman Road in Blackman Township, had 30 total crashes in 2014. With busy shopping and the I-94 interchange nearby, frequent crashes are common in the area. But it was surprising to see the amount of accidents jump to that level — from 18 crashes in 2013. Five of the 30 resulted in injury.

North West Avenue and West North Street tied with North Brown Street and West Michigan Avenue for second place, with 26 crashes overall at each intersection.

North West Ave (Business 127) and West North Street in Jackson has shown up on these lists consistently through the years and took first place for most injury/fatality accidents, with seven occurring there in 2014. Again, please use caution while driving through these areas.

And let our lawyers know what you think. Do you drive through these intersections? Why do you think they’re on the list?
