A 21-year-old Holliston woman is the latest cyclist from Massachusetts to be killed while biking out of state.

Emily Gagnon, 21, was riding a bicycling in northwest Ohio when she was hit from behind bar a car and killed on Monday evening, according to the Toledo Blade.

Gagnon was riding to San Francisco to raise money for multiple sclerosis research. She was hit by a 49-year-old Ohio woman who was adjusting her sun visor, Ohio state police said. No charges have been filed.

On Saturday, two Massachusetts women were killed when a 20-year-old driver slammed into a group of cyclists in New Hampshire. The driver was unlicensed and is scheduled to appear in court.
