CORVALLIS — An Oregon State University student was killed Saturday morning after she lost control of her bicycle and was struck by a car coming the other way, according to the Benton County Sheriff’s Office.

Carin Marie Norris, 19, of Corvallis was taken to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

According to Captain Greg Ridler of the sheriff’s office, Norris was riding northbound on Sulphur Springs Road near the intersection with Soap Creek Road around 10 a.m., when she lost control of her bicycle for an unknown reason and traveled into the southbound lane.

A multi-jurisdictional team, which included Albany and Corvallis police, responded to the accident and contributed to the initial investigation.

It has been determined that no drug or alcohol use is believed to have been a factor in this crash.
