Detectives in Fairfax County are investigating why a pick-up truck swerved into an Alexandria woman who was standing near her mailbox Tuesday afternoon, killing her.
46-year-old Glenda Quiroz was hit by the truck in front of her home in the 7000 block of Beulah Street. Investigators say the pick-up was traveling southbound from the Franconia-Springfield Parkway when it left the roadway. As the driver corrected, and came back on to the street, the truck hit Quiroz before coming to a stop a short distance down the road. Quiroz was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators say the driver may have had a medical emergency and was taken to the hospital with a life-threatening condition.
