WALTHAM (CBS) — Three Brandeis University students remained in the hospital the morning after they were hit by a car while crossing South Street on their way to a Super Bowl party.

When they were hit, the students were in a crosswalk, investigators said. The students were taken Beth Israel Medical Center with injuries that were considered serious. Two of the students were released on Sunday night, while the other was held overnight for observation.

The students were identified as an 18-year-old man and 18- and 22-year-old women. Their names will not be released.

“All three pedestrians were thrown several feet,” Gallant said, Sunday night. “Two suffered head injuries and the third suffered other injuries which were not apparent.”

The driver of the car that struck the trio, a 42-year-old Belmont resident, was not impaired at the time of the crash and has not been arrested, the police said.

There have not been any charges filed against the driver.

On Monday morning, the university released the following statement:

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the students who were injured. This accident serves as an unfortunate but important reminder that everyone should use caution when driving, walking or cycling.”
