Passage in story on Yale Bowl tragedy incorrect
The story was later updated Saturday to report:
In the initial hours after the incident, police received a wide range of witness accounts about what transpired. Police knew this much for certain: The U-Haul pulled into the lot, suddenly accelerated and struck the three women. But police were sorting out sometimes contradictory witness accounts, from some witnesses who assumed the driver of the truck inadvertently accelerated, to at least one who thought the situation could have been sparked by “road rage.” So far, police are leaning toward the former. A police source said the U-Haul was pulling into the parking lot to prepare for a tailgate when the driver “maybe accidentally” hit the gas and accelerated quickly into a crowd of people.
