High Crash Network Streets Methodology
The High Crash Network includes 30 streets. These are a composite of the top 20 high crash streets for driving, the top 20 for bicycling and the top 20 for walking. The analysis uses crash data from 2004 through 2013.
Streets marked as "High # of Driving Crashes" are those with the highest number of people killed or seriously injured in vehicles. Streets marked as having high numbers of bicycle or pedestrian crashes include those with the highest number of crashes, regardless of severity, for people on bikes and walking, respectively.
While the aim of Vision Zero is to eliminate deadly and serious injury crashes, we include all crashes for people biking and pedestrians because the difference between a minor injury and a serious injury to a person biking or pedestrian is often random and circumstantial.
High Crash Network Intersections
The table below identifies the 30 intersections in Portland with the highest numbers of reported collisions using data from 2014 through 2018.
Intersections in the table are ordered from least safe to more safe. Rankings reflect three metrics: total number of crashes, collision rate, and total value of collisions.
The PDF document includes additional intersections and more information about each location.

High Crash Network Intersections Details & Methodology
Crash data was queried from the Portland Bureau of Transportation's AccidentHistory database based on Oregon Department of Transportation crash data. Query output included the top 100 intersections in Portland with the highest number of intersection and intersection-related crashes that occurred between 2014 - 2018.
Only fatal and injury crashes (of all severity levels: serious, moderate, and minor) were included. Crashes selected occurred at intersections or were intersection-related only. All modes were considered as part of the overall High Crash Intersection analysis. Separate HCI lists for bicycle crashes and pedestrian crashes are to follow.
The top 100 intersections in the City of Portland with the highest frequency of crashes following the above criteria were selected and then ranked using the sum of rankings from three different measures:
- Number of Deadly and Injury Crashes: The intersections were first ranked by number of crashes that occurred within the 5-year time period as aggregated by the original database query.
- Collision Rate: Number of crashes coded to an intersection are normalized by considering the number of cars traveling through the intersection. The calculation for the collision rate (collisions per million entering vehicles) is: Collision Rate = (Crashes/5 years) X (1 year/365 days) X (1/ADT*) X 1,000,000. Note: ADT (average daily traffic) is the number of vehicles entering the intersection daily.
- Severity of Crashes: Severity of crashes is represented by the total economic value of a crash, figured by assigning monetary value to the severity of crash related injuries using National Safety Council figures. The value of each crash is figured by multiplying the number of crash related fatalities and/or injury types by the values below. The number of fatalities and injuries are sustained injuries, not number of crashes. Total Value = # Fatals* Fatal $ + # Inj A* Inj A $ + # Inj B* Inj B $ + # In C* Inj C $
|Fatal value||Injury A value||Injury B value||Injury C value|
This report is compiled from data supplied by the Oregon Department of Transportation, Transportation Safety Division, Crash Analysis and Reporting Unit, from records originally received by the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles. Due to under-reporting of collisions, this list should not be considered to represent all collisions occurring at the intersections listed. The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation analyzed the data and prepared the resulting report.
