Crossings near malls top list of Indy’s most dangerous intersections during holiday season

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The holiday season is upon us and many will be traveling to Indy malls this year to pick out presents for loved ones, but new data from the Indiana Institute of Criminal Justice shows most of Indianapolis’ most dangerous intersections are near malls.

“It’s not shocking, but it is alarming so I’d tell you to be careful,” Driver Davisha Fredericks said. “Just think about safety.  I know it is hard to think about that when you are trying to get that perfect gift last minute on Christmas eve, or on Black Friday this Friday.”

The most dangerous intersection over the last five years from Nov. 20 to Jan. 1 is 86th and Keystone near the Fashion Mall, followed by 82nd and Allisonville near Castleton and third on this list is Madison Ave. and Stop 11 near the Greenwood Park Mall.
