More Information On The Top 2 Most Dangerous Intersections in Saginaw County
No. 1 Dangerous Intersection: Bay Road and Tittabawassee Road, Kochville Township
This corner has held the No. 1 spot on the list of the most dangerous intersections in Saginaw County for the past five years in a row. Fortunately, the levels are remaining fairly consistent and not increasing as the corner had 46 traffic accidents in 2019 compared to 47 in 2018. Of concern though is the increase in reported injuries as this past year saw 8 reported injuries up from just 2 in 2018.
No. 2: Center Road and State Street, Saginaw Township
Remaining at the No. 2 spot on the list of the most dangerous intersections in Saginaw County from last year is an area west of downtown Saginaw with heavy retail traffic. Total car crashes increased from 33 in 2018 to 36 in 2019, and the number of reported injuries went up as well. Use caution in this area.
Data for other Michigan cities and counties
