Jefferson County is the most dangerous county in Oregon for pedestrians according to a report released Tuesday. Over the last ten years, five pedestrians have died in Jefferson County. Beth Ann Beamer with Mountain View Hospital in Madras says there's room for improvement: “We have some challenges there. We're talking about a community built around two large highways, not necessarily build for the people who inhabit those communities.” Deschutes County ranked the second safest metropolitan region in the state with ten pedestrian deaths in the last ten years. Most of the deaths in Deschutes and Jefferson counties were where highways run through towns like Madras, Redmond, bend and Tumalo.
