PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Friends and family of a woman killed in an accident on North Rosa Parks Way held a vigil for her on Wednesday.

The group gathered at the crash site, comforting the family of the victim, Diana Miller-Dixon.

Diana was killed on Saturday when a driver hit the side of her Jeep, pushing it into a nearby home.

21-year-old Rayna Johnson is facing manslaughter charges. Police believe speed was a factor in the crash.

Diana's family said the vigil isn't about blame, it's about remembering their loved one.

"Diana meant a lot to this community, she meant a lot to her kids. An accident in one second took her life away. You gotta understand she left three kids behind. The family isn't here to blame anyone, they just want to figure out what happened and what the police department is doing about it."

The family has set up a GoFundMe account to help with funeral expenses.
