What Saginaw County intersections had the most automobile accidents in 2015?
The attorneys at Michigan Auto Law worked with and would like to thank the Michigan State Police Traffic Crash Reporting Unit, which collects motor vehicle accident reports from Saginaw area local law enforcement, to identify us identify what areas in Saginaw County had the most overall car accidents in 2015. These locations include any crossing or corner that has a traffic signal, four-way stop or roundabout.
Check out the list below to see if you drive through any of these areas, and please remember to try to use extra care and caution if you do:

*Includes all automobile accidents that occurred on overpasses as well as the on/off ramps.
Before our attorneys get into more detail on some of these specific crossroads, please keep in mind, the above list includes “total car accidents ” – meaning the combined total of property-damage-only, injury and fatality crashes.
No. 1: Bay Road and Tittabawassee Road – Kochville/Saginaw Townships
The Saginaw County intersection with the most car crashes in 2015 is a busy shopping area near I-675. The spot also had the highest number of wrecks in 2014, spiking from 46 car accidents to 59 in over a year. Unfortunately, we see quite a few crossings along Tittabawassee Road that have a high number of motor vehicle accidents. In fact, there were 160 total car crashes at all interchanges on this road between I-675 and Center Road in 2015.
No. 2: Birch Run Road and I-75* – Birch Run
When adding all crashes on the on/off ramps as well as the overpasses, this area came in second on the list. Given the high traffic volumes from the outlet stores and Frankenmuth-bound tourists, we’re not too surprised by these numbers.
No. 3: Bay Road and McCarty Road – Saginaw Township
Just a mile or so south of the top intersection is another busy section of Bay Road. It’s important that drivers use caution on multi-lane stretches of road with higher speed limits – as these types of traffic areas frequently correspond to higher crash frequencies.
