Officials say they responded to Main Street between 5th and 6th Streets at around 6:30 p.m.
Officials identified the victim as Michelle Buck, a sophomore at the college.
“It is tragic when we lose a member of the Ursinus family,” said President Brock Blomberg, in a message to campus following the accident.
“Please join me in keeping her family and friends in your thoughts and prayers. I encourage all of us to find comfort and support in one another during this trying time.”
