If you feel like it's dangerous when you hit the roads in Pitt County you would be right. At least according to a new report.

Triple-A-Carolinas says for the fifth straight year, Pitt County ranks as the most dangerous county in the state for collisions.

An analysis of data from Triple-A shows crashes in Pitt County are fifty-percent higher than the state average.

In March of 2013, Greenville Police released statistics showing their top ten intersections in the city where the most wrecks occur. Below is the list of those intersections along with the number of reported crashes in the year of 2012:

1) Arlington Blvd. and Evans St., 30 wrecks
2) Arlington Blvd. and Red Banks Rd., 29 wrecks
3) Greenville Blvd. and E 10th St., 25 wrecks
4) Arlington Blvd. and Fire Tower Rd., 22 wrecks
5) Arlington Blvd. and Stantonsburg Rd., 20 wrecks
6) Charles Blvd. and Fire Tower Rd., 20 wrecks
7) South Evans St. and Fire Tower Rd., 20 wrecks
8) Arlington Blvd. and Hooker Rd., 19 wrecks
9) Arlington Blvd. and Dickinson Ave., 17 wrecks
10) Arlington Blvd. and NC 11 South (Memorial Dr.), 17 wrecks

AAA Carolinas bases its annual ranking of the most dangerous counties on the likelihood of crashes resulting in fatalities, injuries, those involving motorcycles, and tractor-trailers, based on vehicle miles traveled.

AAA says it hopes the report reminds motorists of the need for safe and defensive driving.
