Financial analysis company MoneyGeek in late June published its Texas Fatal Accident Study, which the company composed by examining more than 10,000 fatal crashes across the state from 2017-19.
According to the report, there were 14 fatal accidents on I-35 from the interchange at US 290 and the Yager Lane exit, equalling 3.1 fatal accidents per mile.
That made that stretch of I-35 through North Austin the fourth most deadly roadway in Texas, and the only road in Austin among the 10 deadliest roads in the state, per the report.
Travis County had the fifth most fatal traffic accidents from 2017-19 of all counties in Texas, with 337 accidents resulting in 357 deaths, the report found. In that timespan, 36 fatal crashes occurred on I-35, making it the most deadly road in Austin.
Drunk driving crashes accounted for more than one-fifth of crash-related deaths in Travis County. Statewide, approximately 25% of the 10,137 fatal accidents from 2017-19 were because of drunk driving, according to MoneyGeek.
