Portland 2023 Deadly Traffic Crash Report

In 2023, 69 people were killed in traffic crashes in Portland, the highest death toll in at least three decades and surpassing 2021’s record high. 

Those 69 people were part of this community. Their lives were cut short and countless people feel the loss of someone dear in their lives. Those killed by traffic violence this year were children, siblings, parents, aunts and uncles, grandparents, neighbors, and friends. Our city mourns those lost. We can and must do better. 

The City of Portland and the Vision Zero program at the Portland Bureau of Transportation aim to eliminate both traffic deaths and serious injuries in Portland. The State of Oregon and the U.S. Department of Transportation also have goals to eliminate traffic deaths. 

Finalized data from 2019–2021 was provided by the Oregon Department of Transportation. Preliminary traffic death data for 2022–2023 comes from the Portland Police Bureau. No data is available yet on serious injuries from 2022–2023.
