Eau Claire (WQOW) - We are still in the first month of 2020 and Eau Claire police have already responded to 159 crashes this year.

Police say the intersections that had experienced the highest number of crashes so far this year are Rudolph Road and East Clairemont Avenue, North Hastings Way and Birch Street and Brackett Avenue and South Hastings Way.

Three crashes have already occurred at all three intersections in 2020.

Police say there are a number of other intersections that have experienced more than one crash this year, including East Hamilton Avenue and Highway 93, North Barstow Street and East Madison Street and North Clairemont Avenue and Vine Street.

"These intersections are not necessarily the most dangerous in town but they are the most traveled and they are the ones that since the beginning of the year we have responded to the most," said Bridget Coit with Eau Claire police.

Of the 159 crashes since January 1, only 11 have involved injuries.

Coit said every winter brings challenging driving conditions and police ask you to slow down.
