DENVER — Where the top 10 most dangerous intersections in Denver are located this year likely won’t surprise most drivers.
Denver Police compiled a list of the top 10 worst intersections in Denver so far in 2019 based on crashes reported in those intersections.
The data is based on traffic reports from Jan. 1 to June 1, 2019. Police also shared the number of crashes recorded in those same intersections for all of 2018.
The intersection at W. Alameda Avenue and S. Santa Fe Drive tops the list with 22 crashes listed from Jan. 1-June 1, and 34 crashes in 2018.
Denver Public Works also says auto-pedestrian accidents have spiked in 2019, and the biggest factor in those accidents is distracted driving.
