Of the 279 intersections in the state of Texas classified as "dangerous", several are right here in Bell County - specifically Temple and Killeen.

Texas attorney Brian White just completed a study in tandem with TXDOT of some of the most dangerous intersections in Texas. This is a look at intersections state-wide, and the ones making the list are intersections that saw more than 48 collisions between 2012 and 2015.

Along with the data visualization company 1point21interactive, and collision data from the Texas Department of Transportation, this study includes intersections along freeways, major roadways, and county roads. Each intersection includes a "Danger Score" that consists of the number of crashes, injuries, and deaths that have occurred at various Texas intersections. You can see the study's complete results here.
