On Feb. 22, a Mazda passenger car driven by 24-year-old Taya Clifford of Eagan spun into oncoming traffic on Hwy. 13 and was struck by a van. The accident claimed Clifford's life.
A few days earlier, another woman was seriously injured at the intersection of Yankee Doodle Road and Lexington Avenue when she was thrown from a vehicle, according to police reports.
Hoping to help educate readers, Eagan Patch compiled traffic accident data taken from the Eagan police reports during the months of November, December and January. The map you see is the product of that effort. Every accident reported to the Eagan Police Department during that three-month period is identified by a marker on the map.
Accidents involving property damage only are marked by blue pins, while accidents with a reported injury are marked by green pins. Click on each pin to view information regarding the date and time of the crash.
This is not meant to be a comprehensive listing of all accidents in the city, as there are likely many more minor accidents that were not reported to police.
Still, we hope the map will help jump-start the conversation about safe driving in Eagan.
