Ingham County’s Most Dangerous Intersections in 2022

Our Lansing car accident lawyers share the list of Ingham County’s Top 10 most dangerous intersections based on Michigan State Police car accident reports for 2022 so local drivers can use extra caution when they’re traveling through these areas.
