Muskegon County's Most Dangerous Intersections in 2022

Our Muskegon car accident lawyers share the list of Muskegon 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.

This annual list is provided by our attorneys to help keep Michigan drivers safe.

In 2022, more than a third (29.2%) of all fatal motor vehicle accidents in Michigan occurred at intersections.

Our list of Muskegon County’s Most Dangerous Intersections reflects the latest car accident data available from 2022 on the top 10 interchanges with the highest number of reported car crashes. Our attorneys would like to thank the Michigan State Police Traffic Crash Reporting Unit for helping us by providing the car accident data that we use to identify these dangerous intersections. The underlying traffic accident data analysis is compiled using motor vehicle accident reports filed by local law enforcement and police departments throughout Michigan.

The crash data encompasses and includes any traffic accident reported that occurred within 200 feet of an intersection including near freeways (and their subsequent on-ramps off-ramps and service streets), divided highways and rural roads.)

More Information On The Top 2 of Muskegon County’s Most Dangerous Intersections

No. 1: US 31 @ SHERMAN BLVD, Muskegon

Although (thankfully) it did not make the list for 2021, this busy area east of Muskegon claimed the No. 1 spot for the most dangerous intersection in Muskegon County in 2022.

It was #1 on the list for 2020.

However, there is good news to report: Total crashes at this interchange were 38 in 2022, which is a dip from 43 crashes in 2020 and a significant drop from the 64 crashes in 2019.

As we see many intersections on these lists across the state that are freeway on and off ramps, drivers should continue to use caution when entering and exiting US 31.  

No. 2: HARVEY ST @ STERNBERG RD, Fruitport Township

Total crashes at this intersection dipped from 36 in 2021 to 35 in 2022. However, they have increased 52% from 23% in 2020.

Data for other Michigan cities and counties

As we see from years of data analysis on Michigan intersection accidents, intersections with heavy traffic near freeways or retail businesses continually show up on these high car crash lists.
