Jill Cruikshank, 23, was killed instantly in the collision.  She had come to Princeton to take her younger sister and two other undergraduate women home for the Thanksgiving holiday.


The driver of the second car, a 38-year-old Liverpool, NY man, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and speeding, according to police.  He was not injured.


Janet Cruikshank graduated in 1976 from the Harley School in Rochester.  At Princeton, she majored in biology.  She was also a member of Charter Club.
