Charlotte police cited the owner of the bus after investigators discovered the bus did not have insurance and its license plate was fictitious.

The Highway Patrol's motor carrier unit spent four hours going over the bus in detail. In their inspection report, a number of violations were noted, including unmarked emergency exits, faulty windshield wipers, a discharged fire extinguisher, no warning devices, balding tires, and an engine oil leak.

Troopers also said that the bus was not registered with the state. The violations could bring more than $1,500 in penalties.

It's still not clear how 20-year-old Polly Rogers fell out of the bus and into traffic on North Tryon Street.
