Former NLA President Diane Forgy, who owns Overland Limousine in Kansas City, was interviewed aboard one of her chauffeured buses while sharing information on limo bus doors and windows.

Emergency doors and windows in their vehicles aren’t designed to just fly open easily, Forgy said. “There are steps involved and they’re not just a quick-release because that would be very dangerous. This is an unfortunate situation and we don’t have enough information to judge what happened and why and how it can be avoided.”
