CAUSE 18 DEATHS
There were IS fatalities from
the operation of motor vehicles in
Oregon during August last as com
pared with 15 during August 1927
During 1928 up to the end of Aug
ust 122 persons have died as the
result of motor vehicle accidents.
Of the August death toll six per
sons were killed in Portland, 12
met death by accident in other cit
ies and towns of the state and on
the highways. Of the total deaths
from such accidents five were
caused by collision of motor, ve
hicles with pedestrians; seven
when a motor vehicle was in colli
sion with another motor vehicle;
one where a motor vehicle collided
with a railroad train; one where
a motor vehicle and bicycle were
in collision; one where a motor
vehicle collided with an animal
and three were the result of non-
collision operating accidents. i
During July the number of fa
talities numbered 33. This was the
largest number of deaths result
ing from the operation of motor
vehicles in any one month in the
entire history of the state. The
record for August 1928 is not so
large as that of the previous month
by 14 yet it Is too high by lust
the number of fatalities that oc-l
on motor vehicle operation gen
erally since that time at least it
is hoped that something has ocur-
rea that has brought anout a re
duction in the fatalities for August
and that they will continue to les
sen until the deaths from such
causes are wiped out entirely.
In August 2495 accidents were
reported to the secretary of state
ii which 405 persons were injured
The main contributing cause as
usual is carelessness of some kind
on the part of the operator, and
disregard of the prescribed and or
dinary rules of the road.
