Little new info available in death of bicyclist, 85

There is little new information about the bike crash that left an 85-year-old man dead Saturday.

State College police said they responded to the 100 block of Rolling Ridge Drive in College Township for a report of a person involved in a bicycle crash with injuries. Duane Olson, of 301 Rolling Ridge Drive, was transported to Mount Nittany Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

According to police, a preliminary investigation indicates that this was a single-vehicle crash in which Olson lost control of his bicycle and crashed, striking his head on a chain link fence and brick wall. No information on what caused Olson to lose control of his bicycle is available, though police did say no other conveyance was involved and no foul play is suspected.

Police were assisted at the scene by the Centre LifeLink EMS.
