WINCHESTER (CBSLA.com) — Flowers were placed on the side of a Riverside County road Tuesday to honor a 68-year-old woman who was left there to die last week.

Wanda McGlover was on her daily morning walk Friday when she was fatally struck by a driver.

“It all doesn’t add up, how it started,” said her son, who asked that his name not be revealed.

“Everybody left the scene and left her in a ditch…bleeding…hurting,” McGlover’s son said.

At the time she was hit, McGlover was talking on her cellphone to her daughter; she said she heard her mother say, “Excuse me?” followed by screaming and a scuffling sound in the background.

McGlover’s daughter called her brother, who lived with their mother. He traced his mother’s walking path and found her lying in a ditch. Her cell phone was missing.

“She was trying to breath and I held her hand,” her son said.

Paramedics took McGlover to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

McGlover’s passing comes just one month after she was behind the wheel in a deadly collision on Interstate 215 in August.

McGlover was driving her SUV when she hit and killed a pedestrian.

The CHP reported the pedestrian jumped in front of her path, possibly to commit suicide.

“I really hope there is not a correlation to that. It never really crossed my mind,” her son said.

The CHP is investigating McGlover’s death as a possible hit and run.

And her son believes someone knows what happened.

“Please turn yourself in, because you cannot get to where she is right now with this on your conscience,” McGlover’s son said.
