Which are the Most Dangerous Roads in Asheville for Car Accidents?

While most of Asheville is peaceful and calm, locals must remain alert to the potential danger of car accidents in busy city streets. The most common locations in Asheville for car accidents include the following:

Merrimon Avenue

Merrimon Avenue was long considered an Asheville poster child for dangerous road design. Its four lanes of traffic once created blind spots for drivers turning left as the innermost lane blocked the outer lane. City officials have recently begun upgrades to resolve these dangers, and there is hope that fewer serious car accidents will occur on the road from 2024 onwards.

Patton Avenue & Leicester

Patton Avenue and Leicester Highway is an intersection notorious for serious car accidents in Asheville, NC. The area from Florida Avenue, half a mile up to Leicester on Patton Avenue, features commercial driveways, parking lot entrances, and no pedestrian crosswalks. Our latest report on dangerous Asheville roads highlights the potential for serious car crashes at Patton Avenue and Leicester Highway.

US Highway 74

Connecting Asheville to cities across North Carolina, U.S.-74 has long been one of the most dangerous roads for serious car accident injuries and fatalities. A 2024 crash at Exit 53B from the I-40 to US-74 led to the deaths of two Asheville teens.
