While auto accidents can happen anywhere, a new study finds some cities may be more dangerous than others. CNBC has compiled a list of the most dangerous cities for driving in the United States, using the cities with “the greatest number of vehicular deaths as a barometer of the danger level,” while also taking into account their population.

Researchers looked at U.S. cities with a population of 150,000 or more and used the latest crash data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and General Estimates System (GES).
