SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Three crashes have killed four pedestrians in Salem since mid-December. All three crashes took place in darkness and no drivers were found to be at fault.

The Statesman Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1uESrvO) they were the first pedestrian deaths in the city in a year.

Police try to address the problem each year with a pedestrian safety campaign and crosswalk stings.

The Oregon Department of Transportation says there were 48 pedestrian fatalities in Oregon last year and 52 in 2013.
