STORRS, Conn. (AP) - Students at the University of Connecticut are mourning the death of a fellow student with a vigil on campus.

Friends and family were gathering Tuesday night to remember 19-year-old Jeffny Pally of West Hartford.

Pally was killed in an accident early Sunday when she was run over by a campus fire department vehicle. State police have said she was sitting with her back against a garage door outside the department and was run over when the fire vehicle left for an emergency call.

Investigators have said it was unclear why she was sitting there.

Pally’s mother says she has questions about her daughter’s death. She says the truth may be ugly, but she wants to know what happened.
