PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -
Neighbors and activists held a candlelight vigil Thursday for a southwest Portland woman who was killed walking to her bus stop Tuesday morning.

Mara Rosanne Forsythe-Crane, 27, was hit and killed by a truck when she was in the crosswalk at Southwest Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway and Shattuck Road.

Investigators said she was in a crosswalk with the "walk" signal on when the driver, Michal Albino, 42, of Portland, turned right from Shattuck Road into the crosswalk and hit her. He was driving a large box truck.

The driver continued past the corner, according to police, but returned to the scene and has cooperated with investigators. Officers said alcohol was not a factor and no citations have been issued at this time.

The intersection remained closed for several hours after the collision.
