OAK HARBOR, Ohio (AP) — The State Highway Patrol says a 21-year-old bicyclist from Massachusetts was struck and killed in northwest Ohio while riding across the country to raise money to benefit people with multiple sclerosis.
Troopers say Emily Gagnon, of Holliston, Mass., was struck from behind by a sport utility vehicle Monday evening in Ottawa County, about 15 miles southeast of Toledo. The patrol says the recent Westfield State University graduate was wearing a helmet but suffered fatal injuries.
Troopers say the 49-year-old Martin woman driving the SUV was facing glare and was adjusting her sun visor when she hit Gagnon. The SUV driver wasn't hurt.
The patrol says speed and alcohol aren't considered factors in the crash. There was no immediate word on any charges, and the investigation is ongoing.
