Highways and interstates in Texas were site to 62 percent of fatal car accidents in 2015, according to study. These accidents accounted for 10 percent of all fatal car accidents that happened in the US during that year.
The 1.49 miles of I-69C in Edinburg, between FM 2812 and Monte Cristo Road and just north of the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley campus, is considered the deadliest stretch of highway in Texas.
Between 2013 and 2015, twelve crashes killed drivers in that section of 69C – that’s an average of 8.05 fatalities per mile. Many car crashes on this highway are caused by merging and lane-change incidents and poorly adjusting speed limits.
Other dangerous Texas highways are located in highly populated cities such as Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin, and Odessa. The following information was taken from a three-year study of Texas highways from 2013 to 2015.
