One student was killed and 27 people were hurt on Saturday night while riding a shuttle bus back to Brandeis University from a hockey game at Northeastern University. Although no names have been disclosed, statements from the school and the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office on Sunday morning provided fresh information about the terrible accident.
What did Brandeis University said about bus crash?
“A Brandeis-owned shuttle bus was returning to campus from a trip that included Cambridge and Boston at about 10:45 p.m. on Saturday when an accident happened on South Street in Waltham. We know that 27 people were sent to nearby hospitals by local EMS, the majority of them were Brandeis students. One death has been reported to us, albeit it’s not yet known who it was.”
“Brandeis has informed students, faculty, and staff of the disaster. We are currently offering counselling and assistance to students and will do so for the foreseeable future.”
One student dead
According to the statement, the remaining 26 passengers and the bus driver “received injuries of varied degrees” and were sent to nearby hospitals.
In a statement posted early on Sunday, Brandeis stated that 17 of the injured had been discharged from the hospital and the remaining were admitted.
It is taking time to ascertain everyone’s status, including which passengers are Brandeis students, the statement added. This is due to the quantity of injured people and the many hospitals to which they were transferred.
No one has been charged, and no names have been made public.
Police are requesting any witnesses to the collision to come forward as the investigation into it continues.
According to Brandeis, the university’s counselling centre offers grief counselors.
