1 dead after bus crashes carrying students in Massachusetts

One person has died after a bus carrying Brandeis University students crashed on Saturday night, the university said.

First responders transported 27 people, most of whom were Brandeis students, to local hospitals, officials said.

“We have been notified that one person has died; the identity of this person is unconfirmed,” university officials told ABC News in a statement.

A college-contracted bus crashed on South Street in Waltham, Massachusetts, on its way to college, the school said. The bus was traveling through Cambridge and Boston when it crashed around 10:45 p.m., Brandeis said.

“Brandeis has informed students, faculty and staff of the accident; we are providing guidance and support to students and will continue to do so over the next few days,” a school official said.

Waltham Fire Chief Andrew Mullin told reporters on Sunday there were multiple injuries, but would not say how serious they were.
