I have the honor of recording all of the accidents at the 5th worst intersection in Houston, as rated by the Houston Chronicle. This is the intersection of Beltway 8 and Westheimer in Houston Texas. My office is on the sixth floor facing West and has a simple webcam in the window. This camera has been in operation since August of 2013 and has captured over 20 accidents as of June 2014. A second camera on the North side of the building was added in May of 2014 and was a quick hit as June was a busy month with four accidents.

This was the very first wreck recorded on the webcam. If you look closely you can see me at my desk in the window reflection. It was so exciting to actually capture the first wreck.

This is what the intersection looks like. This shot is facing East on Westheimer. The wrecks mostly happen when someone traveling East on Westheimer runs the light on the other side of the intersection. You can see that the light is in plain view.
