Case Continued For Driver In Yale Tailgate Fatality
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ The 21-year-old driver of a U-Haul truck that struck and killed a woman in a tailgating area at the Yale-Harvard football game in 2011 has appeared in court after he was charged Friday with negligent homicide with a motor vehicle and reckless driving.
Brendan D. Ross of O’Fallon, Mo., appeared Monday in New Haven Superior Court. He did not enter a plea to the misdemeanor charges and the case was continued until June 12.
Police have said Ross was driving the rented truck carrying beer kegs through the popular tailgating area before the football game when witnesses saw the vehicle turn a corner and speed up, striking three women. Thirty-year-old Nancy Barry of Salem, Mass., was fatally injured in the crash.
