Where are the worst places in Midland County for car accidents?

Our attorneys provide the a list of the intersections where you’re most likely to be involved in a wreck

Today, we’re sharing new data on motor vehicle crashes in various intersections throughout Midland County.  Hopefully, local drivers can use the information to avoid the most dangerous areas for car accidents in Midland.

The first list covers the intersections with the total number of car accidents reported in 2014.   While total number is important, it can also be a bit misleading. This is because many of these are smaller wrecks and fender benders that result in little or no reported personal injury.

The second list is a better indicator of the more dangerous intersections in Midland. It includes the number of auto accidents where an investigating police officer reported an injury to one or more drivers at the accident scene. It can also include fatalities. Consider using extra caution when driving in these areas or avoiding them entirely, if you can.

Our attorneys would also like to extend a big thank you to the Traffic Crash Reporting Unit of the Michigan State Police, which provides us with this data so we can share  this traffic safety message.

Eastman Avenue and East Wackerly Road in Midland took the No. 1 one spot with 33 total crashes in 2014. Not far behind was the corner of Eastman Avenue and North Saginaw Road, which had 29 crashes last year. In fact, five out of the top 10 high crash intersections listed are along Eastman Avenue, with most concentrated around the US-10/Midland Mall area. Please use caution in this area, which is pretty congested.

Meanwhile, there was a tie for the intersection with the most injuries and fatalities between Ashman Street and East Indian Street and Eastman Avenue and East Wackerly Road, both having seven in 2014.

Our attorneys would like to hear what you think: Do you drive through these intersections? Why do you think they’re the site of so many car accidents?
