    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The search continues for a man after a deadly crash on Monday that killed a University of North Carolina-Charlotte student.

    The victim's classmates gathered to remember her Friday night.

    Students left campus not long ago to go out to the crash site to set up a memorial for 22-year-old Noelle Dixon.

    Before that, friends brought a collage of photos to Belk Tower on campus.

    They had candles to light in her memory, but the rain forced them to change plans, so they decided to go back to the crash site on North Tryon Street near Interstate 485 to set up a memorial that will withstand anything.

    Dixon and two other women were involved in the head-on collision. Dixon was taken to Carolinas Medical Center Main with life-threatening injuries.

    She died Wednesday afternoon.

    Dixon was found in the passenger seat of the Acura that crashed into an SUV.

    Police have not identified the driver and that's why they want to talk to that man who left the scene without talking to police.
