CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The College of Charleston will hold a memorial Monday for the transfer student who was struck and killed by a SUV on the Crosstown a little over a week ago.

The memorial for 21-year-old United Kingdom transfer student Hannah-Rose Elledge will be held at 3 p.m.

Family members from across the Atlantic Ocean are expected to be in attendance for Elledge, who was visiting for one year from Nottingham University.

Charleston police say Elledge and a friend were struck by a Jeep Cherokee as they crossed the Septima Clark Expressway at Coming Street around 2:30 a.m. Nov. 18. Elledge died shortly after impact and her friend's ankle was broken.

Police said the driver had a green light and would not face charges.

Hannah-Rose was a honor student in politics and American studies at Nottingham. She was a member of the CofC Women's Ultimate Frisbee Club and was excited to have the opportunity to take painting and ice skating classes.

According to her CofC friends, she followed the American presidential election intensely and tried to introduce them to the correct method to make tea. Her favorite movie was the Notebook and she visited the Charleston-area sites where it was filmed.

College of Charleston officials would not release the location of the memorial as they said it was only for the campus community.
