Entry: illumine (v.)

In context: "Through the door's window, passing headlights illumine a disabled person in a wheelchair laboring along the rutted walk outside the Portuguese grocery opposite Antitoi Entertainment's storefront."

Definition: To light up, shed light upon; to shine upon or into; to light up in token of rejoicing or honour.

But here, more prosasically

To become light or bright; to be illuminated.
