CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – Here is a list of the top five roadways with the highest accident rates based on traffic volume in one city in the Miami Valley.

The Centerville Police Department released the numbers from their fourth quarter traffic analysis from 2017.

The locations named are:

  • E. Franklin between Main Street and Clyo Road.
  • Far Hills Avenue between Whipp Road and Alex Bell Road
  • North Main Street between Alex Bell Road and Franklin Street
