The attorneys here at Michigan Auto Law worked with – and we’d sincerely like to thank – the Michigan State Police Traffic Crash Reporting Unit who collects accident reports from local law enforcement to identify what intersections had the most overall auto accidents in 2015. These high-crash-frequency crossings includes interchanges with a traffic signal, four-way stop or roundabout.

Check out the list below to and please take caution if you happen to drive through any of these junctions:

Before we get into the details about the frequency of motor vehicle accidents at certain intersections, please keep in mind the above list includes “total crashes” – meaning it is the combined total of property-damage-only, injury and fatality crashes.

No. 1 – Sherman Blvd @ US 31 – Muskegon

The Muskegon County intersection with the most car crashes in 2015 is the busy US-31 on/off ramps at Sherman. Unfortunately, six of the top ten interchanges on the list are along US-31 on/off ramps and interchanges. This crossing also had the highest number of injury accidents in the county with 29 out of the total 61 crashes resulting in injuries. That means almost HALF of all crashes at this junction resulted in injuries. Stay alert in this high risk area.

No. 2 –Harvey Street @ Sternberg Road – Fruitport Twp

The second highest number of crashes was at an intersection just east of another busy US-31 exit with busy restaurants and shopping. This corner on the border of Norton Shores and Fruitport Township held the No. 1 spot in 2014 with 44 total crashes.
