Two Northeastern University students, one of whom survived the Boston Marathon bombings, were killed in a car crash in Dubai, the school confirmed Monday.

The two students were identified as Victoria McGrath and Priscilla Perez Torres. Northeastern said they were in Dubai on a personal trip, and not while studying abroad. The two, who were roommates, were set to graduate this year.

“Northeastern University has confirmed that two undergraduate students have been tragically killed in a car accident overseas,” the university said in a statement. “Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Victoria McGrath and Priscilla Perez Torres in this extremely difficult time.”

Northeastern confirmed that McGrath, who was 23, survived serious injuries sustained in the Boston Marathon bombing.
