Van carrying Clinton to Yale involved in accident

Clinton told WTIC-TV yesterday that the accident was "just a fluke" and that he is fine.

State police Lt J Paul Vance says traffic on the Merritt Parkway was nearly at a standstill just north of New Haven because of another accident when a civilian vehicle struck the Secret Service van carrying Clinton at a very low rate of speed.

The van continued on to Yale, where Clinton gave his address to Yale seniors. He made no mention of the accident during his speech.
