The first names of traffic death victims and approximate location where these 63 deaths occurred on Portland streets in 2022.
In 2022, 63 people died in traffic crashes in Portland. That is the same number of people killed in 2021, and a higher death toll than we've seen in at least three decades.
The people who died on Portland’s streets were children, parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, neighbors, and friends. Their lives were cut short. Their loss has left gaping holes in the hearts of those who knew them and loved them. Our communities and our city mourn their losses. We can do better.
The City of Portland and the Vision Zero program at the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) 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.
