One woman was killed and two others injured Saturday after a U-Haul van crashed into them outside Yale University’s football stadium before the game against Harvard, authorities said.

The driver of the van lost control of the vehicle as he was pulling into Lot D of Yale Bowl’s main parking area and the vehicle suddenly accelerated, striking the women and then crashing into other vehicles, said New Haven Police spokesman Dave Hartman.

The incident happened an hour and 45 minutes after the parking lot opened for tailgating at about 8 a.m., police said. No charges had been filed by late Saturday.

“You could see the path of destruction coming in,” eyewitness Bill McNeff told CNN New Haven affiliate WTNH. Video footage showed overturned chairs and other items.

One woman was pronounced dead at Yale-New Haven Hospital, where one of the other women is in serious but stable condition, Hartman said. The third woman was taken to another hospital to be treated for minor injuries, police said.
