Let’s take a quick look at the top 3 locations that had the highest number of crashes to learn more:
No. 1 among Bay/Genesee/Saginaw most dangerous intersections: Bay Road and Tittabawassee Road, Kochville/Saginaw townships, Saginaw County, 61 crashes, 17 injuries
Once again topping on the list this year is a busy shopping area near Interstate 675 in Saginaw. The 61 crashes in 2016 made for a slight increase over the 59 crashes in 2015. This stretch of Tittabawassee between I-675 and Center Road consistently shows up in our top 10 intersection lists every year for Saginaw County.
No. 2 among Bay/Genesee/Saginaw most dangerous intersections: Court Street and Center Road, Burton, Genesee County, 43 auto accidents , 14 reported injuries at the scene
Showing up in the No. 2 spot for 2016 is a busy area close to a major freeway interchange east of downtown Flint. Stay alert in areas like this, where merging traffic and a heavy retail presence contribute to congestion and crashes.
No. 3 among Bay/Genesee/Saginaw most dangerous intersections: Bristol Road and Grand Traverse Street, Burton, Genesee County, 42 auto accidents, 11 injuries
Right behind the Court and Center intersection, at the No. 3 spot with 42 crashes, is another area right next to a busy interchange. Again, use caution in these areas.
