Dangerous intersections

For the third straight year, Kellogg and Webb Road recorded more traffic accidents in 2009 than any other intersection in south-central Kansas, newly released accident figures show. While many Wichita suburbs have seen an increase in accidents as their populations grew from 2000 through 2009, few suburban intersections recorded as many accidents as Wichita’s most accident-prone intersections. Here are the figures for Wichita and suburban cities with at least 200 intersection-related accidents during the decade.
