MARYSVILLE — A Marysville woman was killed Thursday morning when the bicycle she was riding was struck by a car on County Home Road near County Road 113.

Ms. Shaw was transported to the Union County Memorial Hospital in Marysville where she was pronounced dead.
The car’s driver, Cydney Troyer, 57, also of Marysville, was not injured.
