Officials say a woman is dead after being hit by a car in Frederick County.

The Frederick County Sheriff's Office was called around 6:30 a.m. Sunday to the scene of the crash on Route 194 in the area of Route 550.

A female pedestrian was struck by a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta. The driver stopped to report the collision.

The pedestrian, identified as 30-year-old Sarah Lynn Ruhl of Woodsboro, was pronounced dead at the scene.
