One woman is dead after she was struck by a car on the Highway 217 ramp off of I-5 southbound early Monday morning.

Tigard police arrived on the scene around 5:30 a.m. 

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue said the woman was already dead at the scene when crews arrived.

Police said the woman, identified as Vicky Stroh, 41, of Lake Oswego, had been attempting to cross the Highway 217 when she was hit by an oncoming pickup truck. They added that although Stroh was in the crosswalk, the crosswalk signal had not been activated.
