According to a study released Tuesday by Allstate Insurance Co., the Greater Toronto Area had the highest rate of car crashes per capita in Ontario in the past three years.

GTA communities Thornhill, Ajax, Maple, Brampton and Bolton, which made up the bottom five communities with the highest crash rates, had between 5.9 and 6.6 collision claims per 100 vehicles.

The GTA community of Brampton wasn't far behind, with a 35% increase in crash claims.
