WASHINGTON — A 72-year-old woman was assaulted by people in a St. Mary’s County, Maryland, neighborhood, after her SUV struck a child who ran into the street, according to the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office.
It happened on Wednesday around 3 p.m. St. Mary’s County sheriff’s deputies arrived at the 46000 block of Yorktown Road in Lexington Park for a report of a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian.
They found a 2003 GMC Envoy in the roadway. The driver was 72-year-old Linda Glaser.
She was traveling south on Yorktown Road and an ice cream truck was stopped on the opposite side of the road. As Glaser passed the truck, a 10-year-old child ran into the roadway from behind the ice cream truck, the sheriff’s office said.
