Two intersections in Houston have been labeled as among the deadliest in Texas, according to a recent survey. In all, there are over 80 intersections in Houston at which 40 or more collisions occurred between 2012 and 2015.
According to the survey, the deadliest intersection in Texas is the intersection of Bammel North Houston Road and Sam Houston Parkway. Three people died there between 2012 and 2015, and there were 335 crashes there during that time frame. Another very dangerous intersection in Texas is the intersection of Bissonnet Street and Sam Houston Parkway. More than 300 accidents occurred there between 2012 and 2015.
Upon learning about the most dangerous intersections, many drivers are motivated to detour around certain intersections. The survey focused on determining which intersections were dangerous, but did not determine what makes them so dangerous. One commonality between the two most dangerous intersections is that they are both feeder lanes which run alongside toll roads.
If you have been involved in an accident in Houston, it’s important to stand up for your legal rights right away. Many accident victims choose not to get an attorney involved, fearing that the attorney will take a large chunk of their money without any real benefit. However, studies show that accident victims with an attorney have larger settlements on average than accident victims without an attorney, even after the attorney’s fees are deducted.
