NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- Police say someone driving a U-Haul truck into a tailgating area at the Yale-Harvard game accelerated into three women, killing one and injuring the other two.

Police spokesman David Hartman says the truck entered a parking lot designated for pre-game tailgating Saturday, sped up for unknown reasons and hit the women. The truck then crashed into other U-Haul vans in the lot.

He said a 30-year-old woman was taken to Yale-New Haven hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Another woman was seriously hurt, but was in stable condition. The third woman suffered minor injuries.

Hartman says police were questioning the driver of the U-Haul.

Officials did not immediately return calls seeking more details.
