LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- One of Southwest Florida's main drags is now being considered one of the most dangerous in the nation.

This is according to a new study by GeoTab, a fleet management company.

It ranks U.S. 41 – also known locally as Tamiami Trail and Cleveland Avenue -- as the second most dangerous road in the country.

The report says there have been more than 700 deadly crashes on U.S. 41 in the last decade.

U.S. 1 on Florida's east coast was ranked the most dangerous in America.
