(WXYZ) — A new website allows you to search for crashes in metro Detroit.
The Southeast Michigan Coalition of Governments (SEMCOG), has created a database showing when, where, and how every single reported traffic crash happens. They created the database to find out where drivers are most in danger.
The analysts took a look at police report after police report, looking for patterns. You can search that data at their website by clicking here.</p>
