Fan death mars Harvard's 5th straight win over Yale

Associated Press

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- The 128th edition of a long rivalry was marred Saturday by a fatal tailgating accident about two hours before Harvard beat Yale 45-7.

A driver of a U-Haul truck carrying beer kegs through a tailgating area suddenly accelerated, fatally striking a 30-year-old Massachusetts woman and injuring two other women, police said. New Haven Police spokesman David Hartman said the driver was in police custody.

Once the game started, Harvard continued its football dominance over Yale, spotting the Bulldogs an early touchdown before scoring 45 unanswered points. The football series is the third longest in the country.

Having already clinched its 14th Ivy League championship the previous week, Harvard (9-1, 7-0) has now won 10 of its last 11 games with Yale, including five straight.

Harvard's 45 points were the most scored by the Crimson against Yale (5-5, 4-3) since it won by the same 45-7 score at Cambridge in 1982.
