A University of North Carolina student has died after falling out of the window of a party bus into the path of traffic during a night out on campus.

At around 10:30 p.m., the 20-year-old fell out of an emergency window on the right side of the bus and landed in the road's center lane, where she was struck by two other vehicles, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said in a statement Wednesday.

The young woman was on her way to a bar uptown with a large group of friends who remained at the scene after the accident.

The Kappa Sigma Fraternity suspended the operations of the Kappa-Omega Chapter at UNC Charlotte as the investigation into the deadly incident continues. But though its terms of service state the person renting the bus will be held responsible for underage drinking, an Alcohol Law Enforcement agent says the bus driver is actually in charge.

A college student in North Carolina was killed Tuesday night after she fell out of a party bus onto the road and was hit by passing cars.

The fraternity chapter issued a statement Thursday to WBTV that says it will "fully cooperate" with officials.

"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", an unnamed father of one of the passengers told WSOC-TV. "It's something that's never happened before". Family and friends are now mourning the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority member.

It is not known how long Rogers had been studying at the university or what she was majoring in.

"She could always be found in the common areas of the house greeting sisters after their day at classes and making sure their day was going well", the GoFundMe read.
