PORTLAND (AP) — There have been two more pedestrian fatalities in Oregon.

Police report a 21-year-old man was hit and run over by two trucks Monday evening on Highway 219 in Newberg.

Police say a woman was struck and killed Monday evening in Cottage Grove while pushing a shopping cart. She was wearing dark clothing and there were no street lights in the area.

That makes 54 deaths of people walking on roadways so far this year in Oregon — nearly double the number of a year ago.
