Prince George’s County Police identified the woman who died after being struck by a tow truck in Langley Park Saturday night, and police are still seeking the driver of a second vehicle who kept driving after running over her belongings.

The incident happened around 8:39 p.m. when Irma Glover, 76, of the 7600 block of Maple Avenue in Takoma Park, was walking across the intersection of Riggs Road and eastbound University Boulevard, Prince George’s County police said.

The tow truck struck Glover and the driver remained on the scene and cooperated with the police investigation, said Cpl. Clinton Copeland, a county police spokesman.

Cpl. Larry Johnson, a county police spokesman, said the second vehicle, an older model Toyota, ran over her belongings she had been carrying and continued driving. Johnson said originally, police believed the second vehicle struck Glover based on witness reports but now believe the woman was not hit twice. Police are still seeking the driver of the second vehicle but only as a witness to the incident, Johnson said.

Glover was not in a crosswalk at the time she was struck, said Pfc. Iris Acosta, a county police spokeswoman on Monday. Acosta said the incident is still under investigation and charges, if any, will come from the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s office.
