The identity of a woman left dying Friday on a French Valley roadside was confirmed by authorities today.
A Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner's Office employee confirmed that Wanda McGlover, 68, of Winchester, was the woman found Friday on Brookridge Lane.
McGlover was located by family members after she did not return from her usual morning walk, according California Highway Patrol officer Nathan Baer.
Brookridge Lane is off of Washington Street near a park and housing tracts, in an area of Winchester known as French Valley.
The woman was seriously injured and initial evidence was consistent with her being struck by a vehicle, according to a statement released Friday by Baer.
McGlover was taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center-Murrieta, where she was pronounced dead at 9:50 a.m. Friday, according to a coroner's report.
As of Friday, CHP was investigating the death as a felony hit and run.
Patch readers described McGlover as an African American woman often spotted walking in the area wearing brightly-colored dresses and hats.
An article published by the The Press-Enterprise stated she was a foster parent to three boys.
She may have been on her cellphone with her daughter at the time the fatal incident occurred, The Press-Enterprise reported.
An outcome of the investigation into her death was still pending as of Tuesday morning, according to the coroner office and CHP officials.
Anyone with information pertaining to the investigation was asked to call the Temecula Area CHP office at 951-506-2000.
