UHaul Truck Collides With Tailgaters At Yale Bowl, Kills One, Injures Two Others [UPDATE]

ESPN College Gameday just reported that a U-haul truck hit three individuals, killing one woman tailgating before today's Harvard-Yale game. Yale Daily News tweeted, however, that three people had been sent to the hospital, one in very critical condition.

Yale Daily News also has a story posted confirming the accident, but does not mention whether anyone has been killed. "Students at the scene reported seeing emergency responders giving one of the victims CPR for 10 minutes. The section of the tailgate where the collision occurred has been closed off and is being treated as a crime scene, though the rest of the tailgate is still underway."


Update 11:50 a.m.: Yale Daily News confirms that one of the victims, a 30 year old woman, has died as a result of the crash and another is in "serious but stable condition."

"As it entered parking lot D, the site of the tailgate, the UHaul accelerated and ran into the three victims before crashing into a smaller UHaul."
