Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say Rogers was riding in a Charlotte Party Charter bus Tuesday night when she fell out of an emergency window and was hit by at least two vehicles. The fraternity rented the bus.

Police said the bus was traveling from an off-campus house Tuesday night on its way downtown when the accident occurred.

Rogers was a member of the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, which has started a GoFundMe to help pay for funeral costs.
