One person was killed and 27 people were injured after a bus carrying students from Brandeis University in Massachusetts rolled over Saturday night, officials said. 

The shuttle bus was transporting 27 students from a hockey game at Northeastern University in Boston when it crashed around 10:30 p.m. near Brandeis’ campus in Waltham, about 10 miles west of Boston, the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office said in a statement. 

Officials said one student was pronounced dead at the scene, and the remaining 26 students and the driver of the bus sustained injuries and were taken to local hospitals. The university said in a statement Monday of the people hospitalized, 11 were admitted for further care. 

“Given the number of injured people and the different hospitals to which they were transported, it is taking time to determine the status of everyone involved, including which passengers are Brandeis students,” the university said.
