Fatal Car Accidents in Oregon
Every year, hundreds of people across Oregon are killed as a result of traffic crashes. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are completely preventable. Year after year, we see innocent people die as a result of drivers who engage in reckless or negligent actions.
Drunk driving is another major cause of fatal crashes. In Oregon, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. However, many people still choose to drink and drive, often with tragic results.
Distracted driving is another dangerous behavior that can lead to fatal crashes. It can be anything from texting while driving to diverting your attention from the road to change the radio. Even taking your attention off the road ahead for a moment can have devastating consequences.
Running red lights is also a major cause of fatal crashes. Every year, countless accidents occur when drivers run red lights, often with tragic results.
