Interstate 75 is one of the deadliest highways in the country, according to a newly released report.

Consumer research firm ValuePenguin published a detailed report looking at the country's most dangerous highway, and I-75 landed in the top five.

Ohio is the third deadliest state along I-75, and Cincinnati and Toledo ranked third and fourth for the most fatal accidents on the highway.

The stretch of I-75 around the Dayton area was not listed among the dangerous.

The highway — 1,786 miles in length, spanning from Florida to Michigan — also ranked in the top five for rainiest and snowiest highways, and saw approximately 844 deaths from 2011 to 2015.
