Using ten years of Massachusetts Department of Transportation data through 2013, NBC Boston recently determined the five intersections with the highest number of car accidents.


They included in their data dings, fender benders, and more serious crashes. The intersection between Columbia Road and the Expressway in Boston takes the top spot with nearly 296 reported crashes. The top 5 most dangerous intersections in Massachusetts are:

  1. Columbia Road at the Expressway, Boston
  2. Middlesex Turnpike at Route 128, Burlington
  3. Granite Avenue and the Expressway, Milton
  4. North Washington Street and the Central Artery, Boston
  5. Route 128 and Interstate 93, Woburn
