IRVING, Texas (AP) - Police say two people accused of pretending to be good Samaritans and robbing a crash victim in Irving have been arrested.

According to Irving police, a 48-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman were arrested Thursday after being tracked to an extended stay hotel in Dallas.

Police say Kimberly Smith was going home Sunday morning when she says she was cut off by another driver, causing her to swerve and her car to roll. According to authorities, Smith crawled out of her vehicle and a man handed Smith her purse saying he was going to call for help.

Authorities say the man got into a pickup and drove away, leaving Smith stranded. Smith said she then discovered her wallet had been stolen.
