Woman hurt in tailgating accident sues


Awoman who was struck by a U-Haul truck that also killed a friend in a tailgating area at the Harvard-Yale football game in November is suing the driver and U-Haul for more than $15,000. The truck was being driven too fast at the NewHaven site, was not under proper control, and was unsafe, Sarah Short said in papers filed in New Haven Superior Court. Police said the driver, Brendan Ross, was taking the U-Haul carrying beer kegs through a popular tailgating area before the football game when witnesses sawthe vehicle turn a corner and speed up, striking three women. Neither William Dow, a lawyer for the driver, nor U-Haul returned calls seeking comment Wednesday. (AP)
