The year 2016 marks the deadliest year on US Highways in almost 10 years, with an estimated 40,000 fatalities.

A recent study conducted by the vehicle tracking company, Geotab, identifies the most dangerous highways in each state, based on fatality rates. In Missouri, the deadliest highway was U.S. 63 Highway, a north-south highway that passes through Columbia and Jefferson City. In Kansas, the study found the deadliest highway was Interstate 70.

Geotab pulls statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Highway Administration, and adjusts the data for average daily traffic counts.
