The victim fell out of the door of the bus as it turned a corner.

The BC Coroners Service has identified a woman who died in a fall from a party bus in Vancouver on Jan. 9 as Langley’s Chelsea Lynn Mist James, 23.

James fell from an open door while the vehicle was making a turn onto Burrard Street from West Hastings. She was then hit by the vehicle, which was operated by Silver Lady Limousine of Burnaby.

The incident is the latest linked to party buses, which include injuries, crashes, and open alcohol on the moving vehicles.

In a 2012 incident in Brookswood, occupants of two party buses spilled out and started a fight near 200th Street and 40th Avenue. Rules on party buses were tightened in 2014.
