One Dead, Two Injured in Tailgating Accident

One woman was killed and two others were injured in an accident involving a U-Haul truck at a tailgating area outside the Yale Bowl in New Haven, Connecticut, on Saturday, police officials said.

The accident occurred just before the Yale-Harvard football game kickoff, when a U-Haul truck suddenly accelerated and struck the three women.

All three women were rushed to the hospital, where one woman was pronounced dead, another was listed in serious condition, and the third was treated for minor injuries.

The driver of the U-Haul was a Yale University student who was taken into police custody for questioning.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
