Colorado State Patrol produced a list of the most dangerous intersections with the highest number of crashes to KRDO Newschannel 13.  

The top 5 intersections may not be as dangerous as they seem.  A crash that occurs a hundred yards before or after the intersection will be reported as a crash at that specific intersection.  

Because of the way car crashes are reported, we are not including them in our top 5 list but still provided those cross streets.
