POWAY (CBS 8) - Friends and loved ones are grieving for a life cut short in a freak accident.

Evelyn Courtney, 19, was killed Thursday when the car she was riding in collided with a fire truck.

Authorities say the Poway fire engine was responding to a medical call with its lights and sirens on when it broadsided a Honda Accord.

The driver was taken to the hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. But Courtney died at the scene.

A candlelight vigil was held Thursday night for the Poway graduate, and aspiring model.

Authorities are investigating whether drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
