Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Oregon

Portland, OR – Pedestrian Fatally Struck by Vehicle on NE 122nd Ave near NE Sandy BlvdPedestrian crashes are the cause of thousands of deaths in the United States each year. Unfortunately, we see many people die as a result of these accidents here in Oregon. It is important to be aware of the dangers that can lead to deadly accidents on the road.

Failing to yield is one of the most common causes of fatal pedestrian accidents. When drivers fail to yield at intersections or when merging onto highways, they put themselves and others at risk of a serious collision.

Distractions are also a major problem on the roads today, as more and more people are using their phones while behind the wheel. This can lead to impaired driving and even accidents involving pedestrians.

Running red lights is another major cause of fatal car accidents. In Oregon, there have been a number of high-profile accidents involving drivers who ran red lights, resulting in multiple fatalities. These accidents are often caused by driver distraction or impairment, but they can also be caused by simply not paying attention to the road.
