*Includes all crashes that occurred on overpasses as well as freeway on/off ramps.

We thank the Michigan State Police for helping us spread this safety message so people can drive more carefully in this area.

Also, please keep in mind, the above list includes “total” motor vehicle accidents – meaning the combined total of all motor vehicle accidents that include property-damage-only, injury reported at scene, and fatality crashes.

No. 1: I-94 and US-127/North West Avenue – Blackman Township

The Jackson County crossing with the most car crashes in 2015 is the busy I-94 on/off ramps at Business 127. Unfortunately, four of the top 10 junctions on the list are along I-94 on/off ramps and interchanges. As we see with many other counties in the state, freeway interchanges and on/off ramps usually result in a high crash rate.  

No. 2: Airport Road and Boardman Road – Blackman Township

The second highest number of automobile accidents (40) was at an interchange just south of another busy I-94 exit with restaurants and shopping. This area also had the highest number of injury accidents in the entire county, which puts drivers at a greater risk.  Please using caution when driving through Airport and Boardman Roads.
