Update: 19-Year-Old Bicyclist Killed After Collision With Big Rig

There were two traffic fatalities in the area of Balls Ferry Road Wednesday morning. The second one was shortly before 10AM on Deschutes Road just north of Balls Ferry, when a semi truck driven by 42-year-old Grevel Nevarre-Terecino of Gerber struck a 19-year-old Redding woman on a bicycle. She had been crossing Deschutes from the west side to the east when the southbound truck hit her. When emergency personnel arrived she was unresponsive and a trauma alert was called. A short time later the coroner was called to the scene.
