CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston County Coroner's Office has identified the College of Charleston student who was killed early Sunday while crossing the Crosstown.

Charleston County Deputy Coroner Scott Ramsey identified the victim as 21-year-old Hannah-Rose Elledge. Ramsey said she died from blunt force trauma.

Charleston Police Department officers were called out to an accident involving two females at 2:30 a.m. Police say both females were crossing the Crosstown at Coming Street against the green light, when they were stuck by a Jeep Cherokee.

The other student was taken to the hospital with a broken ankle.

Charleston police say the driver of the Jeep had the right of way and will not be charged.

According to the College of Charleston, Hannah-Rose was a student visiting for one year from Nottingham University in England.  She was a honor student in politics and American studies at Nottingham.  She was 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.

A memorial service has been planned for Nov. 26, but the school has not announced where and what time it will take place.
