It's been two days since 56-year-old Rebecca Vegas died, but those who knew her are still struggling to comprehend their loss.
Dozens of people attended a candlelight vigil in her honor Sunday night. Vegas was hit by a car Friday night near the Ocean Avenue and J Street intersection. That is where her friends and family members gathered, to remember a woman who meant so much to so many.
"She's always opened her door for family, for friends, for even total strangers," said Vegas' Son, Daniel Vegas. "She's fed them and helped them out, there's so many people in this town that she can attribute that she's helped out in a lot of ways."
The 18-year-old driver, Lacey Strange, was detained at the scene but officers say it does not appear alcohol or drugs were a factor.
