On Nov. 11, UVU student Amanda Marie Clifford, 20, of Lindon passed away at Utah Valley Hospital from injuries sustained in a car accident.
According to reports Clifford was cut-off in traffic by another driver at around 8 a.m. Clifford swerved right to avoid the collision, then swerved left into a semi-truck.
She was flown to the hospital in critical condition and was taken off life-support at around 2:15 p.m. the same day.
Clifford was a junior at UVU where she excelled in music as a fellowship recipient. She played the flute in the Symphonic Band and the Symphonic Orchestra.
She was an avid reader, had a deep love of music and aspired to become a music teacher and conductor. She was preparing to serve a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in June of next year.
Clifford was a strong advocate of the organ donor program and convinced others to participate. In her death, six other individuals will result in having a chance at life due to her willingness to be part of the program.
A viewing and funeral services were held on Saturday. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.walkerfamilymortuary.com.
