(WXYZ) - The Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) has released new data showing the most accident-prone intersections in metro Detroit.
SEMCOG focuses primarily on Livingston, Oakland, Macomb, Monroe, St. Clair, Washtenaw and Wayne counties.
The information is based off of the average number of crashes each year from 2008 to 2012.
The intersection with the highest number of accidents was Ford Road At Haggerty Road in Canton. There were 67 accidents at that intersection on average each year. The most common type of accidents at this intersection was rear-end crashes.
The list showed a disproportional number of accident-prone intersections in Macomb County. Half of the intersections on the list were from the region, though it's unclear why, since Macomb County has a smaller population than Oakland and Wayne counties.
Here is a look at the top five most accident-prone intersections in metro Detroit:
1. Ford Rd. at Haggerty Rd.
2. Southfield Rd. at 11 Mile Rd.
3. 12 Mile Rd. at Orchard Lake Rd.
4. 12 Mile Rd. at Dequindre Rd.
5. Garfield Rd. at 19 Mile Rd.
