  • Wedding limousine crash leaves 20 dead in New York State

    Rest in peace

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-45778366

    Twenty people have been killed in a crash involving a limousine transporting a wedding party in the US state of New York, police say.

    State police said that two vehicles were involved in the crash on Saturday afternoon in the town of Schoharie.

    Eyewitnesses described seeing an SUV-style stretch limousine leave the road and plough into a crowd of pedestrians at a store near a busy intersection.

    The cause of the crash is unclear and an investigation is under way...

          2001 Excursion limo ran the stop sign at the T of State Route 30 and 30A, hit a vehicle in a business parking lot, killed two patrons, then headed into the woods and hit a tree. Apparently all passengers, and the driver, died. The limo was transporting wedding guests from wedding to reception.

          Press conference here:

          No news that I can see whether or not the bride and groom are among the dead.

          One man did report that both his stepsons died, along with the spouse of one of them. Another couple, recently married this past summer, were also among the victims. All appeared to be in the 25-35 age group.

          Evidently, that T has been a problem for a long time; the manager of the business stated at least three big rigs have been unable to stop on the downhill to the T and have gone across the highway, through their parking lot and into the woods.

          Business is on left and limo ended up to the right of the business in the trees.

                The company that provided the limousine that crashed in upstate New York on Saturday, killing 20 people, had repeatedly failed motor vehicle inspections and the driver did not have a proper license, according to state officials and federal transportation records.

                If true I hope they lock the owner and managers up and throw away the keys.

                  I'm reading that they were, although it wasn't a wedding party, it was the recent Bride's birthday party. They were married a few months ago. The Brides 3 sisters were killed, along with the Groom's brother.
                  The Owner of the vehicle is looking like being an FBI informant who was used to infiltrate domestic wannabe terrorist groups post 9/11. The vehicle that crashed was already a replacement for the original vehicle that broke down and it was described as sounding awful by passengers in text messages before the crash.
