Candlelight vigil held for fallen NYPD Officer Bianca Bennett at 9th Precinct
Family and friends remembered fallen NYPD Officer Bianca Bennet Monday night with a candlelight vigil.
They gathered between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. outside the 9th Precinct in Manhattan.
The 27-year-old from Queens died last week after she was trapped in a car that flipped and caught fire near City Island Road.
Organizers say Bennett had a passion for engaging with the community. She had just graduated the police academy in September.
Police say she was in the Dodge Charger with Sgt. Randolph Price. He was taken to Jacobi Medical Center and remains in serious condition.
Authorities believe speed may have been a factor in the crash.
