According to Oregon State Police and the Oregon Transportation Department, fatal accidents were at it’s lowest over Memorial Day weekend since keeping track of such statistics began in 1970.
This year, there was only one fatality caused by a motor vehicle accident. In this incident, the driver strayed off a highway and ran into a tree.
Even though fatalities were at an all time low, there was an increase in accidents at 127 this year. This is an increase from 107 during the 2007 holiday. Citations also were an issue this holiday weekend, where Troopers statewide handed out over 2,000 speeding tickets.
