Brandeis University bus crash: One person killed in rollover near Massachusetts campus


One person was killed in a bus rollover accident late Saturday, according to Brandeis University. The accident involved Brandeis’ Boston-Cambridge shuttle and happened on South Street near the Brandeis campus in Waltham, Mass., the school said.

“We understand that local EMS transported 27 people, most of whom are Brandeis students, to area hospitals,” Brandeis spokeswoman Julie Jette said in a written statement. “We have been informed that one person has died; This person’s identity has not been confirmed.”

In an email to students and community members Sunday morning, Brandeis said school officials are “working with Waltham police to identify the individual who tragically died.”

The school also said many of the injured have been discharged from hospital, while 11 were admitted for further treatment.

“Due to privacy concerns, the names of those who were injured will not be released,” school officials noted.

“If you are a student and you have not already done so, please contact your family and close friends as soon as possible to let them know you are safe,” the email said.

Waltham Fire Chief Andrew Mullin said early Sunday that the crash is “fully under investigation” and they had not determined a cause.
