20 dead after limousine, vehicle crash in New York

At least 20 people were killed Saturday after a limousine, reportedly carrying a wedding party, and another vehicle crashed at an intersection in upstate New York, police said on Sunday.

New York state police did not release the names of the people killed. Local reports indicated the limousine was carrying a wedding party, but officials would not confirm further details until the news conference scheduled for 3 p.m. Sunday.

Police received 911 calls of a two-vehicle collision just before 2 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of State Route 30 and 30A in Schoharie, a town about 43 miles west of Albany, police said. The National Transportation Safety Board — who said on Sunday it was sending a “go-team” to the crash site — confirmed one of the vehicles was a limousine.

Most of the deaths were in the limousine with two bystanders.

I've been through Schoharie a lot on work trips.  I really can't recall the intersection in question, but some of them around there can be real tough, if someone isn't paying attention.

Pictured - the close family and friends killed in New York horror crash: Newlyweds, young parents and the 30-year-old birthday girl on the way to her surprise party are first victims to be named

Newlyweds, a group of four sisters and young parents were among the 20 killed when a limousine loaded with family and friends on their way to a 30th birthday party lost control and crashed outside a upstate New York country store.

The 2001 Ford Excursion limousine lost control and careened through an intersection and hit a parked car outside a small country store in the town of Schoharie, near Albany, on Saturday afternoon. The crash killed all 18 people in the white limousine, including the driver, and two pedestrians. All 20 victims were adults.

Now the full scale of the tragedy has revealed as one family lost four sisters, and their three husbands, in that crash - the deadliest transport accident since February 2009, when Colgan Air Flight 3407 crashed in Buffalo, New York, killing 50 people.

Four sisters, two brothers, and many more have died in the limousine crash. I cannot imagine the pain and grief the families are going through.  :( :bawl:

FBI informant listed as owner of limousine in deadly New York crash
https://www.foxnews.com/us/fbi-informant-listed-as-owner-of-limousine-in-deadly-new-york-crash

The owner of the limousine involved in a crash that killed 20 people in upstate New York over the weekend was a wire-wearing informant in two FBI terrorism stings, Fox News has learned.

The government credited Shahed Hussain with rooting out radical Muslims at mosques in the New York cities of Newburgh and Albany while he was working as a well-paid FBI snitch.

Hussain is listed as the owner of Prestige Limousine, which operated the 2001 Ford Excursion stretch limo that crashed Saturday in Schoharie, N.Y., according to federal records, which showed that four vehicles had been taken out of circulation by the company due to inspection failures in the past 24 months.

Prestige Limousine is the company that had the limousine crash and kill 18 people. Some of these limo companies are shady like this one. None of them should of been on the road.

Self driving cars were invented years ago. They're called taxis.

Troopers arrest operator of limo company after deadly New York crash

ALBANY, N.Y. — State police arrested the son of the limousine company's owner Wednesday in the crash that killed 20 people four days before and charged him with criminally negligent homicide.

Nauman Hussain, 28, of Gansevoort, New York, ran Prestige Limo in the Albany area. He was stopped earlier Wednesday on Interstate 787 near Albany, taken into custody and later charged with the class E felony, state police said. The one count encompasses all 20 deaths.

The arrest comes amid ongoing scrutiny of the 2001 Ford Excursion that crashed in the rural town of Schoharie after the vehicle failed to pass inspection twice this year, including last month. Hussain father, Shahed Hussain, owned the limo service but was in Pakistan at the time of the crash.

Nauman Hussain was arrested, as he is the son of Shahed Hussain, who runs Prestige Limo.

The limousine failed inspection twice in 2018.

State police are investigating a suspicious death at a motel owned by the former FBI informant whose limo company is behind the deadly crash that killed 20 people upstate, according to a report Thursday.

The death at the Crest Inn Suites & Cottages in Ganseveoort doesn’t appear tied to Saturday’s wreck in Schoharie, a state police spokeswoman told the Albany Times Union.

The death at the motel, about 45 miles north of Albany, was reported on Wednesday, and it was ruled suspicious following a preliminary investigation.
