Brandeis student in serious, but stable condition after she, 2 other students hit by car while crossing street
An 18-year-old Brandeis University student remained hospitalized and in serious, but stable condition today after she and two other students were struck by a car Sunday night while crossing a busy street that runs through the Waltham campus, police said.
Waltham Police Sergeant William Gallant said the other two injured students, an 18-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman, had been released from Beth Israel Medical Center as of about 10 a.m. Monday.
On Monday afternoon, both Waltham Police and university officials referred questions about the incident to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office.
The district attorney’s office said no charges had been filed as of Monday afternoon.
The office said the matter was under investigation and did not release further details, including about the identities of the victims, their conditions, the driver, what may have caused the crash or how long the investigation may take.
The three undergraduates were walking east in a crosswalk on South Street at about 6:25 p.m. Sunday night when they were struck by a grey Lexus traveling north and driven by a 42-year-old man from Belmont, Waltham Police said in a statement Sunday night.
Responders arrived to find all three students in the roadway and the driver, who did not appear to be impaired, remained on scene with his car, which had a damaged windshield, police said.
Two of the students suffered head injuries, police said. The third victim was unconscious. They were taken to Beth Israel with serious injuries, but the hospital reported to police later on Sunday night that all three were in “stable” condition, police said.
