LANSING — A Michigan law firm has released a list of the most dangerous intersections in Ingham County, using data from Michigan State Police accident reports in 2022, and there’s a familiar Saginaw Street intersection at the top.
As in 2021, the intersection of Saginaw and Homer streets remains the most dangerous. But the good news is that the intersection has become safer, with 57 crashes- or about 30 less – in 2022. Injuries were fewer, too, in 2022, numbering 15 – or 11 less – in 2022.
Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and West Main Street in Lansing had the most reported injuries in 2022: 17.
Nine of the 10 worst intersections are on three roads: Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, with four intersections, Grand River Avenue, with three intersections, and Saginaw Street, with two intersections.
The 10th worst intersection is at Jolly Road and Cedar Street.
