Local Student Involved in Party Bus Tragedy

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Police have identified a college student who was killed after being struck by several cars in a bizarre incident late Tuesday night in northeast Charlotte.

The crash happened around 10:25 p.m. on North Tryon Street near the intersection of Sugar Creek Road.


 

"The cars hit her before they could even get the bus driver to stop the bus," explained the father of one of the other passengers on board. "My heart goes out to the parents because my son was standing right there."

He also explained how it happened.

"The girl leaned against the window - which evidently was an emergency exit window - and my son says the latches were broke evidently and she fell out," he said. "I don't think the girl did anything wrong. All she did was lean against the window."

Officers said Rogers fell out of a window on the right side of the bus as it was moving and landed in the center lane of North Tryon Street before being struck.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.
