March 31, 2019

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Friends and family held a candlelight vigil for a woman killed in a possible street-racing crash in southeast Albuquerque.

KOB-TV reports that people gathered Saturday evening at the spot where 39-year-old Angelica Baca died on March 23 to share memories and sell baked goods to raise money for her funeral.

Baca was crossing a street when she was fatally hit by a car.

The driver of the car was taken into custody and police are looking into whether street racing played a role in the crash.

Baca’s children attended the vigil. Her family says Baca loved life, music and was a happy person.

Police investigators are reconstructing the accident scene to determine whether it stemmed from drag racing.
