Local Intersection Named Most Dangerous in the Nation…Where?

It’s in our very own backyard! Just north of the city, where is it?

From Time Magazine:

“It’s in Pennsylvania, according to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on fatal traffic accidents. TIME analyzed the most recent data available, which spanned from 2003 to 2012, and used latitude and longitude coordinates to count the number of fatal accidents that occurred within approximately 150 feet of each other. We then focused on the accident sites that were at the crossing of two roads.”

“Time Magazine conclusion: the most dangerous intersection was in Bensalem, PA, where Knights Road crosses Street Road. It’s in a commercial corridor in Bucks County, fringed by a Subway sandwich shop and a gas station, not too far from a Kohl’s. Why was it the site of 7 fatal crashes during the 10-year time period we analyzed?”
