Kansas City’s 20 most dangerous streets for car crashes

Interstate 435 may be the dangerous highway to drive in Kansas City, Missouri. In fact, according to a recently released list, more crashes occurred on I-435 at I-70 than any other site in the city. There were 107 crashes at this location in 2009. Eight of the top 20 crash sites in the city were located on I-435.
The list, which is posted on the blog of Kansas City Police Chief Jim Corwin, lists the top twenty crash sites in the city.  The sites are located throughout the city, but only include those within Kansas City, Mo city limits.
