The death of Nancy Barry was caused by a Yale frat member who drove his truck into her tailgating car three years ago. This has led to a large-scale litigation by the victim’s family. They are suing all 86 members of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity.
A tragic death occurred in 2011 due to the negligence of Brendan Ross who was driving a beer keg loaded truck. He hit a tailgating vehicle in front thereby killing Nancy Barry. Two other people were seriously injured too. He was charged with negligent and reckless driving. But the amazing fact is he was let off on probation.
Now, three years later, the aggrieved family of Nancy Barry has decided to sue the entire fraternity along with Yale since they were responsible for the sad demise of the 30 year old woman. The truck went out of control and veered off into the car leading to a horrific accident.
Brendan Ross was the guy who drove the U-Haul truck carrying beer kegs for the football match between Harvard and Yale. One of the two survivors of the deadly crash, Sarah Short, has also sued the fraternity. In the beginning the representatives at Yale denied any link between them and the fraternity.
But later on it was found that they were ultimately guilty of being an accomplice in the concatenation of events leading up to the disaster. And now the families of both victims, one dead and the other alive, have filed multimillion dollar lawsuits against the frat members not to mention Yale. Justice may be delayed, but it cannot be denied.
