Volney (WSYR-TV) - A Fulton woman is dead after being struck by a car in the Oswego County Town of Volney Thursday afternoon.

State Police say Megan J. Silliman, 25, was hit by a 2001 Dodge traveling southbound on County Route 57. The driver told investigators that Silliman ran out in front of the vehicle. They said they tried to avoid hitting her, but Silliman was struck by the right, front bumper of the car. 

Silliman was rushed to the emergency room at Oswego Hospital, but was transferred to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse where she later died.

The investigation is continuing.
