Yale-Harvard Tailgate Accident Victim Identified

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (CBS/AP) — Police in Connecticut have identified the 30-year-old Massachusetts woman who was fatally struck by a truck while she tailgated at the Harvard-Yale game.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Doug Cope reports.

New Haven police say Nancy Barry of Salem was pronounced dead at Yale-New Haven Hospital shortly after a U-Haul truck carrying beer kegs accelerated into her and two others Saturday morning.

“She was like the nicest person in the world and it’s just really sad and we express our condolences to the family,” said Alan Hanscom, worked at a condo association in Salem with Barry.

“I just remember her being a very sweet girl, a lot of things coming her way I think she just started a new job,” said Roberta Chadis, who also worked at the condo association.

Police say 30-year-old Yale student Sarah Short of New Haven remained hospitalized Sunday and a third woman, Harvard employee Elizabeth Dernbach, was treated at a hospital Saturday and released.

Police have not released information about the U-Haul driver, who was in custody Saturday. No charges have been announced.
