Ken Kienzle, also a photojournalist with News 12, echoed Golias.
"She always lit up the room when she walked in," said Kienzle.
The NYPD says a 26-year-old man was driving a Revel moped with Kapur as a passenger and did a hard brake, throwing them both onto the road.
Police say the driver suffered minor injuries.
"She was hardworking and driven, but also just so fun," said News 12 reporter Marissa Alter.
After leaving News 12, Kapur went to WCBS in New York City to be a reporter.
She will be deeply missed.
