A 20-year-old University of North Carolina-Charlotte student’s blood alcohol level was more than double the legal limit, when she was murdered earlier this month after falling out of a party bus, toxicology results revealed Tuesday.

Polly Rogers had alcohol in her system that was .19, more than double the legal limit for driving in North Carolina, WSOC-TV reported, citing toxicology results of the North Carolina’s medical examiner’s office. She was not driving the party bus at the time.

Rogers was on the party bus, rented by UNCC fraternity, Kappa Sigma, on 1 May on the way to a bar when she fell from the emergency exit window on North Tryon Street in northeast Charlotte. She was hit by several cars, eventually killing her, police said.

Juan Vasquez, who witnessed the incident, told WSOC-TV, there was chaos moments after Rogers fell on the road.

“Out of nothing I just come out of nowhere and started screaming, ‘Yo, stop, stop, stop, slow down, slow down, 911, 911. Call an ambulance! Everyone kept driving and driving and driving,” Vasquez recalled.

It is still unclear how Rogers managed to fall off the car. The police report that a number of people on the bus were consuming alcohol at the time.

Victor the Creator, and owner of Charlotte y Charters, was cited in the incident. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said that the party bus was not insured and had a false number plate, FOX 46 reported.
