KOCO: High school students attending a prom in Jenks say they watched as a repo man drove away a limousine they had been rented for the special occasion.

At least one teenager thought at first that the stretched-out vehicle was being car-jacked.

The owner of the limousine-rental company says it was all a matter of failure to communicate.

Landon Wiland said he and friends had rented a limo from Galaxy Limos for Friday night's prom at the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks, a Tulsa suburb. Wiland recalled that they had gotten out of the car when it was driven away. He said he thought the limo was being car-jacked.

Galaxy Limo owner Jim Nicolotti said the incident stemmed from miscommunication between his lender and the repossession company.

He said he and his bank had worked out their issues, but the bank did not tell the repo company to cancel the job. Nicolotti said he would offer a partial refund or a free future rental to those affected.
