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

Before our lawyers dive into a couple of the specific intersections, keep in mind, the above list includes total crashes and does not take into consideration injuries or fatalities.

We sincerely thank the Michigan State Police for their help in compiling this important information —that will hopefully prevent car accidents in these hot spots.

No 1: Napier Avenue and I-94 – Benton Township

The Berrien County intersection with the most car accidents in 2015 is the busy I-94 on/off ramps at Napier Avenue. Unfortunately, three of the top 10 intersections 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. Please stay alert in this busy area.

No. 2: Red Arrow Highway and I-94 – Lincoln Township

The second highest number of crashes occurred at an intersection farther south near another busy I-94 exit with restaurants and shopping. The No. 7 intersection on the list is just south of this busy area as well, adding to the risk for drivers. Please also use caution when driving through this intersection.

Our lawyers would like to hear from you: Do you drive through any of these intersections in your daily commute? Why do you think there are so many accidents?
