Tragedy struck the Texas State University campus early Saturday morning when the body of 20-year-old Jordin Taylor, a freshman-year student and member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority, was discovered under the right axel of a school shuttle bus.

Police say Taylor, a Texas native, may have been run over by a shuttle bus either during or after a frat party she reportedly attended at the Cool River Ranch on Friday night in San Marcos, Texas.

"The female somehow came into contact with the bus and was drug over 500 feet," wrote Sheriff Arnold Zwicke of the The Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office in a press release.

Investigators reported that the bus had lost its air braking system, so the driver left it parked.

According to KDAF, it's not clear what caused the bus to move again, or how Taylor was hit, but police believe it was an accident.

Taylor's friends have taken to social media to express their sadness over the tragic loss, remembering her as a "really happy," "genuine" and "full of life."
