The Most Dangerous Street Intersections in Baltimore City
As a Baltimore Chiropractor that spends the majority of my time treating injured clients involved in Baltimore auto accidents and who have suffered Baltimore auto accident injuries including headaches, neck pain, and back pain, I have long wondered where the majority of the Baltimore City auto accident injuries were taking place. That is, this is a large city with many small windy roads and a large diverse population. I was curious where the majority of the crashes were taking place.
Well fortunately for me, I do not need to look any further. By following a law office's blog post the information was brought right to the forefront for me. Here is a link to the blog post along with a really interesting interactive map. It shows down to the intersection exactly how many injury-reported crashes were made in 2015 for each intersection in Baltimore City. There were more than 9,000 reported injuries in Baltimore auto accidents in 2015. So here are the top 6 more dangerous intersections as of 2015 as measured by number of injury-reported crashes.
1) Gwyns Falls Parkway and Reisterstown Road - 46 accidents
2) Northern Parkway at Jones Falls Expressway (JFX) - 38 accidents
3) Orleans Street at Gay & Enstor Streets - 36 accidents
4) West Cold Spring Lane at Jones Falls Expressway (JFX) - 34 accidents
5) South Monroe Street at Washington Boulevard - 27 accidents
6) West Northern Parkway at Falls Road - 26 accidents
Obviously not all Baltimore auto accident injuries occur on road intersections. There are plenty of parking lot crashes and street crashes. It stands to reason that the streets surrounding these above intersections are also very popular auto accident injury streets. In particular Gwynns Falls Parkway reported over 240 crashes in 2015 and Washington Boulevard reported 130 for the year. I suspect that this has more to do with the fact that these are busy streets than that there is anything really wrong with the design or lay out of these streets.
The Baltimore City Police Districts reported the following number of auto accident injury related crashes in 2015: Northeast District (1,442), Northern District (1,320), Northwest District (1,092), and finally Central District (1,070).
As my company prepares for its expansion into Northwest Baltimore (6810 Park Heights Avenue, Suite C4, Baltimore, MD 21215), this blog post makes it clear that our expansion into the northwest is necessary, as a high percentage of the total auto accident injuries in Baltimore City seem to take place up there. I look forward to providing care to those unfortunate Baltimore City and Baltimore County residents that are injured in auto accidents.
