For populations over 500,000, Dallas came in first place with 4.62 deaths per 100,000 residents.

Houston, San Antonio, Waco, and Bryan all ended up in the top 10 as well.

ValuePenguin also looked at mid-sized (20,000-50,000) and small cities 10,000-20,000 in the Texas study too. Kyle was the most dangerous mid-sized city with Forney coming in as the most dangerous small city.
