20 dead after wedding limo crashes in NY

20 killed after limousine crashes in upstate New York, authorities...

Two pedestrians were also killed in the accident, local authorities said. That's one of the inspections that the limo in the crash had failed because of brake and suspension problems, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

All 18 people in the limo were killed, including the driver, Fiore said. Four women were killed in that accident due to a side impact of the passenger compartment of the stretch limo - the weakest part of the auto. The sisters had been texting on Saturday as Amanda Halse got into the limo to head to the birthday party.

Cushing worked in the New York State Senate's Technology Service unit and played for the US Dodgeball team, which described him on Facebook as an fantastic friend and "one of the most agile and dominant players in the world".

She was killed along with her husband Axel; Axel's brother Rich; Amy's three sisters and one of her brothers-in-law, Erin's uncle Anthony Vertucci told the Times Union in Albany.

A manager of the store said the limo was coming down the hill at "probably" 60 miles per hour, the New York Times reported.

A driver and the front-seat passenger are required to wear seat belts inside stretch limousines, but not the back-seat passengers, police said Sunday.

"This is an area where we clearly have a gap that needs to be addressed and it's incumbent upon state policy makers and the feds to work together and address this", she said.

Details are just beginning to emerge from the horrific limousine crash in upstate NY which claimed 20 lives. The US National Transportation Safety Board was investigating. "They would do anything for you, and they were very close to each other, and they loved their family". "Whether or not it would have made a difference here ... remains to be seen", Mr Sumwalt said.

The McGowans were a part of a party of 17 young adults who climbed into the limo to celebrate their friend Amy Steenburg's 30th birthday, the paper and other media reported.

Erin and Shane McGowan - who also married in June - died, too, in Saturday's collision, say relatives.

Amy Steenburg was so in love with her new husband, Axel, she wanted the world to know.

"She was a handsome, sweet soul; he was, too, they were very sweet", Abeling said.

That friend, her husband, and three of her sisters, all of whom were accompanied by spouses, were among those killed in the crash, Abeling said.

Numerous victims were from the upstate city of Amsterdam, about 20 miles north of the crash site.

The limousine which crashed in upstate NY killing 20 people failed an inspection last month and its driver did not have a suitable licence, according to U.S. media.

Cuomo suggested Prestige Limousine would face liability as a result, though he added the investigations - parallel efforts are being conducted by the federal NTSB and another by the State Police - are yet to conclude.

Robert Sumwalt, chief of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), told CNN that the accident should be "a wake-up call" for limousine safety.

Some relatives of the dead shed tears as local officials expressed solidarity with them at Monday's vigil in Amsterdam, New York.

"They were two very young, lovely people" who "had everything going for them".

Many stretch limos "may lack certain basic safety features like the necessary number of side impact airbags, reinforced rollover protection bars, structurally sound frames and accessible emergency exits that can aid passengers and first responders in the event of a crash", Schumer's office said in a news release at the time.

Months later, the NTSB committed to investigating crashes involving stretch limos on a "case-by-case" basis.

"He will be sorely missed by his sister and her children", Douglass said. The pair had just gotten married in June. The company did certify outside companies to modify them to Ford specifications for up to 14 seats during the 2001 model year, but it wasn't clear who modified the SUV that crashed Saturday. But we already know how current regulations, enforcement and the design of these vehicles affect the chances of something like this happening.
