Yale Tailgating Crash Kills One, Injures Several Others
As several students and fans were tailgating Saturday, November 19th, 2011 at Yale University before their football game kicked off against Harvard, tragedy struck.
Nancy Berry, 30, of Salem, Massachusetts was killed and two others were seriously injured when Yale student Brendan Ross ran them over in a U-Haul truck while making a left-hand turn. According to Cnn.com, while Ross passed a sobriety test, he was carrying several kegs of beer in the back of his U-Haul.
According to authorities, as he attempted to make the left-hand turn, he jumped the curb and hit three pedestrians before continuing to crash into two parked box trucks. After the crash, Yale said it would review its policies regarding tailgating as they investigate further.
