State experiences no traffic fatalities over holiday

There were no traffic fatalities in Oregon during the 30-hour Christmas holiday reporting period that began 6 p.m., Dec. 24, and ended 11:59 p.m., Dec. 25.

Tragically, a confirmed fatality did occur Dec. 24 at approximately 2:45 p.m. in Multnomah County. If the preliminary information holds true, this was the second fatal-free Christmas holiday period since 1970.

Police statewide thanked Oregonians for ensuring a sober driver was operating vehicles or reporting possibly impaired drivers. OSP troopers reported 11 DUII arrests during the 30-hour period, two of which were tied to citizen reports.
