We ran the accident numbers off the state database that plots out where all the accidents happen and found out the places that have seen the most accidents, so far this year. We focused on the three busiest areas (Brandon, Tampa and Pinellas County) and discovered the three most dangerous intersections.
We hit the road, to find the most dangerous intersections in Tampa Bay so far this year.
Our first stop was in St. Petersburg.
34th street and 5th ave North is an accident cluster.
So far this year it has been the most dangerous intersection in all of Tampa Bay. There have been 10 accidents, including one fatality.
A cab driver by the name of "Bill" drives St. Pete streets everyday and he has this theory:
"The lights are out of sequence from when the camera people messed with them and they have not been put back," he says.
Our second stop was in Brandon, home to the "endless bumper to bumper."
The most dangerous intersection so far in 2017 there?
The intersection of State Road 60 and Lakewood Drive. There have been 11 accidents since January at this intersection.
Finally our road tour of danger took us to Tampa. Right at the intersection of Hillsborough and Himes where so far in 2017 there have been 9 accidents.
Another trouble intersection this year includes Dale Mabry and Gandy in South Tampa where there's been a cluster of six accidents since January, including one fatality.
