A bus carrying numerous students from Brandeis University crashed Saturday night, in Massachusetts. 

The shuttle was reportedly transporting 27 students from a hockey game at Northeastern University in Boston when it had an accident at about 1030pm. 

1 person killed in the crash was identified as an undergraduate student Vanessa Mark, the university quoted the statement to USA TODAY. 

As per officials 26 others students and the driver of the bus sustained injuries and were taken to local hospitals. 

Of the people hospitalized, 11 were admitted in 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," said the university. 

"Vanessa was an active and cherished member of the Brandeis community." 

The Middlesex District Attorney's office said it is currently investigating the cause of the crash and no charges have been filed yet. 

"Given the tragedy that our community is experiencing, Brandeis has canceled classes scheduled for Monday and Tuesday (Nov. 21 and 22). This will enable some students to return to family and friends sooner than the normal holiday schedule would have allowed. For students who will remain on campus, we will have additional opportunities to gather and receive support."
