- Report Details Phoenix’s Most Dangerous Intersections
May 10, 2016
The City of Phoenix Street Transportation Department has released its 2014 Comprehensive Traffic Collision Summary and it details the most dangerous intersections in the city.
Overall, in the city of Phoenix, nearly 26,000 accidents were reported in one year along with 13,682 injuries and 160 fatalities. The number of auto accidents caused by drivers running a red light or stop sign increased, however, alcohol-related accidents decreased.
The intersections with the most accidents include:
- 67th Avenue and Indian School
- 27th Avenue and Camelback Road
- 43rd Avenue and Thomas Road
- 67th Avenue and McDowell Road
- 43rd Avenue and Northern
Sixty-one crashes were reported at the intersection at 67th Avenue and Indian School Road. At 44th and Thomas Road and Mohave and 7th Street, the most red light runners were reported.
According to the traffic safety sector of the city’s streets department, an increasing number of accidents correlates with the economy. As gas prices began to drop, more people began driving again, which led to more crashes. Though the number of accidents increased between 2013 and 2014, the amount is still much less than 2006 when more than 35,000 wrecks were reported.
Approximately 88 percent of the accidents in the area were caused by drivers speeding or failing to yield. About eight percent were the result of inattentive drivers.
As for fatal accidents, the majority involved pedestrians. In fact, the number of pedestrian collisions have increased every year since 2010 with a 19.3 percent increase between 2010 and 2014. In 40 percent of these accidents, the pedestrian did not contribute to the crash. The department has been working on installing safer pedestrian crossings at various intersections.

Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here . Luckily I’ve only been in 3 accidents but this time it was fast and easy . And i received all the treatments I needed to help me recover ! Thank you Jasmine and Aaron!
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
