Second Student Killed During Spring Break

A second UW-Eau Claire student has died as a result of a crash in Georgia.

UW-Eau Claire News Bureau Director Judy Berthiaume says Jason Daniel Schluter was taken off life support last night and died from head injuries suffered in the crash.

Over the weekend, Schluter and five other young men were headed to Florida on spring break when a tire came off a tractor trailer and went through their windshield.

Funeral services for Schluter have not yet been scheduled, but services for one of his passengers that died on the scene, Jason Buchmeier, is Thursday.

Buchmeier's family has set up a scholarship fund in his name.
