Party bus that student fatally fell from had fake license plates, was uninsured

(NY DAILY NEWS) – The party bus a North Carolina student fell to her death from wasn’t insured at the time and was outfitted with fake license plates, according to a report.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers hit charter bus owner Victor Rabb with the citations amid an investigation into 20-year-old Polly Rogers’ death last week.
The UNC Charlotte student was struck by two cars at about 10:30 p.m. on May 1 when she fell out of an opened emergency exit window on the bus and into oncoming traffic.

Rabb has given control of the bus to North Carolina highway police to investigate what happened, according to Fox affiliate WJZY, which obtained a copy of the citation.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, which issued the citations, didn’t immediately return a request for information Monday.
Party bus driver Michael Logan remained at the scene, the Charlotte Observer reported, and hasn’t been charged in the case.

Authorities are still trying to track down one of the two drivers who struck Rogers after she fell out of the bus, WJZY reported.

Rabb, who couldn’t be reached for comment Monday, told local media last week there were up to 60 people in the vehicle at the time.
The bus was reportedly chartered by the UNC Charlotte chapter of the Kappa Sigma fraternity, which has been suspended as authorities look into Rogers’ death.
It wasn’t clear if Rogers, who majored in special education, was drinking at the time of the accident, but others on the bus were, according to local reports.

A funeral for the killed student, a sorority sister with Zeta Tau Alpha and a Charlotte native, is scheduled for Monday afternoon.
