‘85 DUI death of student leaves positive legacyThe Associated Press | February 11,2013MONTPELIER — A scholarship set up in the memory of a University of Vermont student killed by a drunk driver in 1985 has helped nearly 50 women at the University of Vermont.
And experts say the legal case brought about by the death of Jane Emily Clymer helped shape Vermont laws governing drunken driving.
In the fall of 1985 UVM student, Clymer was walking her bike along Vermont Route 116 when she was hit by a drunk driver. She died the next day.
Jane Clymer’s mother Ann died Sunday. Ann Clymer and her husband, now-retired New York Times reporter Adam Clymer, later sued and collected damages from the bars that had served the driver.
The Clymers donated the money from the settlement to set up the UVM scholarships.MORE IN This Just InPOULTNEY — Sheila Nichols has been so busy for so long, she doesn’t know how to slow down.
