\Most drivers know that car accidents, which often result in injuries, tend to occur near highly trafficked intersections. As with any moderately-sized city, New Port Richey has some dangerous intersections that have seen their share of vehicle accidents. The stress of an accident is difficult for many to handle. However, when a person is confronted with the mounting medical bills from an accident-related injury, it can become a total nightmare. For that reason, we seek to educate the public about some of the most dangerous intersections in our city of New Port Richey.
State Route 19 and Main Street
Understandably, intersections along busy and construction-ridden US 19 pose some risk. There are some New Port Richey intersections along US 19 that are prone to car accidents. For instance, US 19 and Main Street has had five reported accidents in the last few years, according to data from Florida’s Integrated Report Exchange System through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Massachusetts Avenue and Congress Street
This area is also a dangerous intersection in New Port Richey. This area has seen three crashes within the past year; two of them had injuries, and one accident also sustained property damage.
Madison Street and Main Street, New Port Richey
This area can also be incredibly dangerous because it overlooks the public library, and it has a lot of blind spots. A particularly troublesome collision occurred at this intersection in August of this year, and there was one injury.
Madison Avenue and Cecilia Drive
This intersection can also be fairly tricky. A collision with injuries was reported in May of 2015 in this area.
