Woman Injured At Tailgate Party Suing Driver, U-Haul

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A woman injured when a U-Haul truck fatally struck a Massachusetts woman and injured a third woman in a tailgating area at the Harvard-Yale football game last November is suing the driver and U-Haul for more than $15,000.

Sarah Short says in papers filed in New Haven Superior Court that the truck was driven too fast, was not under proper control and was in an unsafe condition. She did not specify how the truck was unsafe.

Short says she suffered “severe and deep bone bruising” and a fracture, skin loss and other injuries. She says she underwent surgeries requiring skin grafts and other corrective measures.

A lawyer for Brendan Ross, the driver, and a spokeswoman for U-Haul did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
