Ohio State student dies

An Ohio State student died early Thursday after being struck by a train in Sharon Township.

Victoria Muchiri, a fourth-year in biology, was a native of West Liberty in Logan County.

Muchiri, 22, died instantly at 1:30 a.m. after standing in front of an approaching Norfolk Southern train. She made no attempt to move from the tracks, the train conductor told Franklin County police.

OSU Student Life spokeswoman Kellie Uhrig sent a statement via email Friday afternoon.

“Our hearts and thoughts are with her friends and family members at this very difficult time,” Uhrig wrote.

Uhrig also noted the suicide prevention services available through Student Life’s Counseling and Consultation.

Anyone with concerns about friends or family or who have thoughts of suicide is encouraged to contact the OSU Counseling and Consultation Service at 614-292-5766 or the Suicide Prevention Hotline at 614-221-5445.
