Nearly a week after a 20-year-old UNC Charlotte student was killed after falling out of a party bus, the bus owner has been cited by police, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said.
The Charlotte Party Charter owner, Victor Rabb, was given citations after police found that the bus was not insured and was using a fictitious license plate Tuesday night when Polly Rogers fell out of the bus while riding from campus to uptown with friends.
Rabb surrendered the bus to the N.C. State Highway Patrol so investigators can inspect the bus for equipment violations, police said.
Rabb was not driving the bus at the time of the crash. The driver, Michael Logan, stayed at the scene, and police have not announced any charges for him.
After Rogers fell from the party bus, she was hit by multiple cars on North Tryon Street, police said.
Police did not say whether Rogers was drinking before the crash, but investigators found that other people on the bus had been drinking.
Rogers was studying special education at UNC Charlotte, and she was a member of Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, the university said. She graduated from Myers Park High School, according to her obituary. Her funeral was on Monday at St. John's Episcopal Church in Charlotte.
UNC Charlotte's chapter of Kappa Sigma fraternity was suspended pending an investigation into Rogers' death, the fraternity's national organization announced Thursday.
Citing police, WSOC reported that the fraternity rented the party bus.
