Wayne County’s Most Dangerous Intersections in 2023

Our Detroit car accident lawyers share the list of Wayne County’s Top 10 most dangerous intersections based on Michigan State Police car accident reports for 2023 so local drivers can use extra caution when they’re traveling through these areas.

This annual list of most dangerous intersections is provided by our attorneys to help keep Michigan drivers safe.

Our list of Wayne County’s Most Dangerous Intersections reflects the latest car accident data available from 2023 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 intersections. The underlying traffic accident data analysis is compiled using motor vehicle accident reports filed by local law enforcement and police departments throughout Michigan.

There were 154 total crashes here in 2023, up from 126 in 2022, 104 in 2021 and 108 in 2020.
