(Newser) – Yale has banned kegs from all student athletic games or functions in the wake of a U-Haul crash that killed a woman at the Harvard-Yale football game in November. The new rules also prohibit box trucks and the like from tailgate parties unless driven by an official vendor, reports AP. In the November fatality, police say an undergrad driving a U-Haul with beer kegs struck three women, then crashed into other U-Haul vans. He passed a sobriety test, and no charges have been filed.
