A new study from a potentially self-interested source (a personal injury law firm) has found that SF's most dangerous intersection for pedestrians is Fifth and Market Street, at least when looking at the years 2010 to 2016.
As CBS 5 reports, the study comes from personal injury lawyers Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoeneberger who partnered with the data visualization firm 1Point21, and it looked at data for 5,846 pedestrian collisions in SF during that six-year period.
By far the most of those collisions, 210, happened at Fifth and Market Streets, with Seventh and Market coming in second with just over half as many, 120, and Third and Market clocked in around the same.
Generally speaking, it's not super safe to be a pedestrian on Market Street, with over a quarter of the total pedestrian collisions over that period happening on the stretch between Van Ness and Montgomery Street though a couple years back we also heard that it's pretty deadly to be a cyclist or a pedestrian at Octavia and Market or South Van Ness and Mission as well.
Out of the 5,846 pedestrian collisions between 2010 and 2016, 130 of them ended in a death.
