The intersection is University Boulevard and 28th Street. AL.com reports there were two deadly crashes at that intersection during the studied time period. To put this in context, time.com concluded Bensalem, PA, contained the most dangerous intersection in the nation with a total of seven deadly accidents from 2003 to 2012.

  • Increased traffic
  • Multiple lanes of traffic converging
