When looking at accidents across different parts of South Carolina, some areas see many more crashes than others.
In Charleston, South Carolina, ask locals where the most dangerous intersection is and many will quickly respond with Ashley Phosphate Road and Interstate 26.
According to an article from The Post and Courier, between 2011 and 2015, the intersection of those two highways produced more accidents than any other area in Berkeley, Murrells Inlet, and Dorchester counties. On average, an accident occurred on one out of every three days.
Reasons for many of the crashes include high congestion, impatience, and distracted driving. Although more troopers are patrolling the area, officials say drivers need to assess their driving behaviors and become less distracted, more aware, and more patient.
