DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Jillian Parker, a 21-year-old student at the University of Dayton, died over the weekend in a bicycle accident.

Trotwood Police say officers responded to reports of a pedestrian strike involving a vehicle and a bicyclist on Little Richmond Road and N. Lutheran Church Road around 7 p.m. on August 29. Parker was pronounced dead at the scene. We’re told the driver did stop and was cooperating with the investigation.

Parker, a senior from Holland, Michigan, was a visual arts major with minors in human rights studies and Spanish. She was also active with the Moral Courage Project, which aims to celebrate people who step up during moments of crisis.

“Jillian is part of an extended UD alumni family and we extend our deepest sympathy and prayers to her family, friends, professors and our campus community,” university officials said in their letter.
