CHARLOTTE, NC (Jane Wester/Charlotte Observer) - The UNC Charlotte student who died after falling from a party bus on her way to uptown on May 1 had been drinking, according to a toxicology report released Tuesday by the North Carolina Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
Polly Rogers, 20, had a blood alcohol content of .19, the report states. While Rogers was not driving at the time, that's more than double the legal limit for driving in North Carolina.
Shortly after the crash, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said some of the other people on the bus had been drinking but did not say whether Rogers had consumed alcohol.
Multiple investigations into the crash are ongoing.
UNC Charlotte's chapter of Kappa Sigma fraternity was suspended after Rogers was killed, pending an investigation into her death. Members of the fraternity reportedly rented the bus.
