MOAB, Utah (AP) -- More than 120 people gathered near Moab to dedicate a memorial for 10 people killed in a plane crash last summer.

The ceremony on Saturday honored the nine employees of Cedar City's Southwest Skin and Cancer Institute and the pilot who died when the private plane crashed Aug. 22 northwest of the Canyonlands Field Airport.

The memorial included a plaque in a sandstone boulder listing the names of those who died.

Members of the Future Business Leaders of America at Cedar High School raised money for the memorial.

The National Transportation Safety Board has not released its final report on what caused the crash.
