A vigil was held Friday for Jaahnavi Kandula, the 23-year-old woman who was hit and killed by a marked Seattle Police Department vehicle on Monday.

On the night of the collision, officers responded to the scene at Dexter Avenue North and Thomas Street after 8 p.m., according to police. Kandula was crossing from east to west in the crosswalk when she was hit.

Officers provided CPR to her until Seattle Fire Department medics arrived and took her to Harborview Medical Center, where she later died. The officer was responding to a “priority one” call at the request of the Seattle Fire Department, according to SPD.

The group Critical Mass held a ride and vigil Friday to honor the young woman.

The group set up a memorial and held a moment of silence at the crosswalk on Thomas and Dexter where Jaahnavi Kandula was hit and killed.
