7-Month Long Investigation Shows High-Risk Areas in North Texas for Alcohol-Related Crashes
NBC 5 Investigates spent seven months analyzing statewide data obtained from The Texas Department of Transportation to pinpoint crash zones where people are more likely to be hit by a driver who’s been drinking.
The investigation determined one zone along I-35E in Lewisville is among the areas where alcohol related crashes occur more frequently, specifically in zip code 75067.
Data revealed that in 2011 and 2012 combined there were at least 176 alcohol-related crashes in that 75067 zip code. Many of the crashes were clustered near I-35E and the Sam Rayburn Tollway and near I-35E and Business state Highway 121.
