Good morning, Nashville. Metro Police put together a list of Nashville’s most dangerous intersections for injury and non-injury accidents. Among those causing the most injury wrecks are Nolensville and Harding, I-65 North at Old Hickory, I-40 East at Stewart’s Ferry, Donelson Pike and Murfreesboro Pike, and Nolensville and Old Hickory. The worst intersections for non-injury wrecks are Thompson and Bransford, Nolensville and Old Hickory, Harding and Nolensville, 21st Avenue South and Medical Center Avenue, and Charlotte and White Bridge. Moral of the story: Be careful! Or invest in a hovercraft.
