CORFU, N.Y. (AP) Authorities say a 19-year-old man has been struck and killed by a vehicle while walking along a road in a rural western New York village.

The Genesee County Sheriff's Office says Dean Cullinan of Corfu was walking his bicycle in the east-bound lane of Route 33 in his hometown, located 25 miles east of Buffalo.

Deputies say a west-bound vehicle driven by a 31-year-old Corfu man hit Cullinan shortly after 10 p.m. Wednesday. Cullinan was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials say Cullinan was wearing dark-colored clothing and the driver didn't see him walking in the road.

Deputies say their investigation is continuing.
