The Michigan intersection car accident lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. frequently handle car accident cases that occur at intersections. Although the results of any type of car accidents can be severe, T-bone accidents that occur at intersections are some of the worst type of car accidents. This is because they involve a car striking the side of another car at very high speed with the point of impact at the exact location in which the driver or passengers are sitting.
Below is a list of the ten highest-frequency car accident intersection locations and crash average for those sites in Northville for the past five years. The statistics were compiled by the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG):
1. 8 Mile and Beck Roads – 20.2
2. 8 Mile Road and Center Street – 13.8
3. 8 Mile and Novi Roads – 10
4. Seven Mile and Main Streets – 7.8
5. 8 Mile and Randolph Streets – 7.4
6. Center and West Main Streets – 7.2
7. Center Street and Edward Hines Drive – 6.4
8. 8 Mile and Taft Roads – 6
9. 8 Mile Road and Novi Street – 4.8
10. Griwsold and Main Streets – 4.2
Intersection accidents can be caused by a number of reasons. However, the main cause of these types of accidents is a driver's failure to stop at a stop sign, red light, or other traffic signal. In other accidents, icy roads combined with high speeds may leave drivers unable to stop when they reach the intersection, leading to a crash.
