The Kansas City metro area has 64 of the 200 most dangerous intersections in Missouri, according to a study based on the state’s 2015 crash data.

The Most Dangerous Intersections in Missouri study was published by the law firm of Douglas Haun Heidemann, which has offices in Bolivar and Springfield. The law firm worked with the San Diego data visualization firm 1Point21 Interactive to produce the study.

The study found that four of the top 10 most dangerous intersections in the state can be found in Kansas City.
