PHOENIX - New information shows Interstate 10 is the most dangerous highway in the country.

Running through eight states, including Arizona, the I-10 had the highest number of deaths over the past year -- at 278, according to data analyzed by the Auto Insurance Center.

This information comes out right before a busy travel weekend, as 70 percent of people surveyed said they plan to drive for holiday trips.

Interstate 95 and Interstate 40 were second and third on the list, respectively.
