Police make arrest in tailgating crash

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Police in Connecticut say they've
arrested 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.

Brendan D. Ross of O'Fallon, Mo., turned himself in at the New
Haven Police Department on Friday evening. The Yale student was
charged with misdemeanor negligent homicide with a motor vehicle
and reckless driving.

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.

Ross' attorney, William Dow, described the case to the New Haven
Register as a "tragedy." Ross was released on a promise to appear
in court.
