As you review the list and explore the details below, keep in mind that our attorneys’ list includes total motor vehicle accident crashes – meaning the combined total of property-damage-only, personal injury reported and fatality car wrecks.  In other words, everything from fender-benders to catastrophic major impact auto crashes.

#1 – Beckley Road @ M-66 – Battle Creek

The Calhoun County crossing with the most car crashes in 2015 is busy M-66 just south of I-94.  Unfortunately, four of the top ten intersections on the list are along Beckley Road.  With a mall and busy retail plus restaurant traffic, the high volume of cars every day certainly makes the area susceptible to crashes.  Stay alert in the area.

#2 – Beckley Road @ Capital Avenue – Battle Creek

The second highest number of auto accidents was at a busy corner just south of the Capital Ave/I-94 exit with bustling restaurants and shopping.  This was also number two on our list last year for 2014 data when the corner had 35 crashes compared to 42 this past year.
