We covered this list in 2009, when the crashes were from 2005-2007. This new report, which
does not yet seem to be you can now find on MORPC’s site, is for crashes between 2007-2009 (I guess I missed the 2006-2008 report, but it’s on MORPC’s site too). Most of the locations are on higher speed, suburban-style arterial streets carrying high traffic volumes. The highest ranked location based on a combination of frequency, rate, and severity is Cleveland & Morse.

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
Broad Street, Cleveland Avenue and Hamilton Road appear most frequently on the latest list of central Ohio’s most-dangerous intersections.
All but one – Rt. 23 at Windbrush Avenue in Delaware County – of the region’s 40 biggest problems are in Franklin County. More than three-quarters are in the county’s eastern and northern neighborhoods.
The report is meant to help government officials identify and fix hazards within their borders, said Kerstin Carr, a transportation planner for the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission.
But it’s also a good reminder to drivers about where to use a little extra caution, she said.
