(WFXR) – Highway crashes are an all-too-frequent occurrence.

The website has ranked each state’s “most dangerous highways” and you might be surprised which highway in Virginia falls under that category.

You might be thinking it’s Interstate 81? Nope.

How about Interstate 77? Incorrect.

Perhaps it’s Interstate 95? Wrong again.

According to GeoTab, Virginia’s most dangerous highway isn’t even an interstate.

It’s Route 460.

GeoTab’s data, collected by data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, says that Route 460 has seen 190 crashes which resulted in 208 fatalities.
