AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) – Three UMass students were hit by a car on campus Monday night, but only one of them needed to go to the hospital for treatment.

“Fortunately, this is not a life-threatening situation,” UMass spokesman Ed Blaguszewski told 22News.”

Blaguskewski said the three students, all of them females, were hit in a crosswalk on Commonwealth Avenue just north of the Recreational Center a little after 6:00 P.M. Monday.

Two of the women were evaluated by EMTs, and were OK.  The third victim was taken by ambulance to Cooley Dickinson Hospital in Northampton where she was treated for unspecified head injuries. “She was conscious and alert and talking after the accident,” Blaguszewski said.

UMass is not releasing the names of anyone involved. The operator was not a UMass student.

Blaguszewski said charges are pending, and the incident is under investigation by the University of Massachusetts Police Department.
