Friends say Krystal Berkowitz was a giving and kind person who was always there for her friends.

A vigil was held in Setauket Tuesday night in memory of a Stony Brook woman killed by an alleged drunken driver.

Police say Krystal Berkowitz, 21, got out of her friend Lawrence Pagano's SUV because she thought he was too drunk to drive. Pagano allegedly followed her down the road to try and talk to her, but instead struck her with the vehicle. Berkowitz was pronounced dead at the scene.
