The investigation into the death of a 22-year-old Buffalo woman continued on Tuesday as police interviewed the driver of the car that collided with the woman’s van, reports BuffaloNews.com. So far, police haven’t filed any charges against that driver.

The crash occurred around 3:45 a.m. Monday morning at the intersection of Delaware Avenue and West Tupper Street. A witness says a car ran a red light and collided with the woman’s van, which then rolled over and pinned the victim.

Three passengers in the van—ages 21, 21, and 28—were all transported to Erie County Medical Center. The 21-year-olds have been released while the 28-year-old remains hospitalized in fair condition.

Friends of the victim told BuffaloNews.com that prior to the crash she had been celebrating a birthday at a bar in the Chippewa Entertainment District.

On Tuesday night more than a hundred people gathered at the intersection where the collision occurred to honor the victim with a vigil.
