As a portage stop in the early 1700s and a railroad hub in the 1800s, Louisville is a city built on transportation. With a total of six U.S. highways serving the city and commuters passing through from throughout the country, Louisville’s status as a transportation hub still stands strong. However, new accident data from the Louisville police department reveals that such a status comes with a cost. Altogether, there were 5,101 motor vehicle accidents that occurred in Louisville in 2016. Overall, accidents were evenly dispersed by date and time with the largest number of collisions occurring in October (479 accident reports) and crashes frequently occurring at 5 pm (31 accidents).
