Minnesota’s Most Dangerous Intersection is in the Most Unlikely Place
Anyone who's driven through the Twin Cities knows how important it is to be a defensive driver. The possibility of getting into a car accident is almost a daily occurrence. That being said, sometimes the most dangerous intersections are located in the most unlikely places. And the most perilous intersection in the entire state might be one you've never even heard of.
According to Bad Intersections, a crowd-sourced survey was done to determine the worst intersections for accidents in all of Minnesota and the results are a bit surprising.
So, where is the most dangerous intersection in all of Minnesota? Surprisingly, it's the Highway 14/Minnesota 15 intersection just outside of New Ulm.
New Ulm is far away from the hustle and bustle of the Twin Cities, yet more accidents occur at this interchange than anywhere else.
Know Your Rights also lists the Highway 14/Minnesota 15 Intersection as the most dangerous in the state. But what about the most dangerous for pedestrians? Here are a few it says to look out for:
