NORFOLK (AP) Virginia officials say a party bus was operating without proper permits when a woman fell out of it last year and died.
The Department of Motor Vehicles said the bus that Kisha Marrow-Lott fell from during a bachelorette party was not “a legal passenger carrier,” The Virginian-Pilot reported. Unauthorized operators are common in the party bus and limo industry.
State police say the bus was entering an interstate when Marrow-Lott fell from the bus. She died at the scene.
The 37-year-old was a mother of two teenagers. Prosecutors called Marrow-Lott’s death an accident and have not pursued criminal charges.
Her husband has filed a $25 million lawsuit, accusing the bus owner and driver — a married couple from Newport News — of negligence.
