Cyclist in ICU following vehicle crash on Kings

A bicyclist injured in a traffic crash Thursday outside Fred Meyer was in fair condition Friday in the intensive care unit, according to a nurse at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center.

Joanna Herron, 26, of Corvallis sustained severe internal abdominal injuries when a minivan pulled out of the Fred Meyer parking lot onto Kings Boulevard and struck her as she was riding south in the northbound bike lane, Corvallis Police Sgt. Jason Harvey said.

The motorist, 44-year-old Holly Steele-Leonard of Corvallis, was not hurt in the accident, which occurred about 5:35 p.m.

No citations have been issued, but the accident is still under investigation.

Herron made the news in 2011 when a tractor lawnmower ran over her head. The accident occurred after she fell asleep while listening to music in tall grass at the Corvallis city shops complex at 1245 N.W. Third St.
