Posted on April 1, 2013

VANCOUVER, Wash. — Five Star Limousine, a Portland, Ore.-based chauffeured transportation company that was involved in a party bus death in September 2012, has been ordered by the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission to cease operations and pay a $2,000 fine for operating without a valid Washington operating permit.

Dave Pratt, assistant director of transportation safety for the state utilities and transportation commission, said the fatal Portland accident, in which 11-year-old Angie Hernandez fell out of a Five Star Limousine party bus window, brought the company to the state's attention.
