INTERACTIVE MAP: A bad day on Winnipeg streets
This map shows the location of hundreds of crashes that took place on Winnipeg streets on Feb. 9, 2009, when freezing rain frosted streets with a slick coat of ice, creating hazardous driving conditions across the city.
The unusual February morning marked the worst day for vehicle collisions within the city in a five-year period, with 745 vehicles reported damaged, according to Manitoba Public Insurance collision data.
MPI had detailed location data for about half of those crashes, and that data is mapped below.
- Red dots mark the intersections where one crash was reported.
- Yellow markers indicate two crashes.
- Green markers show three-crash intersections.
- The blue marker points to Leila Avenue and McPhillips Street, where four drivers had the misfortune to damage their vehicles.
