Limousine crash in upstate New York kills 20

SCHOHARIE, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (OCTOBER 6, 2018) (NBC) – Twenty people were killed in rural upstate New York when a limousine collided with another vehicle, New York State Police said on Sunday (October 07).

The crash occurred on Saturday (October 06) evening in Schoharie, about 38 miles (61 km) west of Albany, on Route 30. Local media reported the limousine was carrying a wedding party.

National Transportation Safety Board spokesman Eric Weiss said a team of investigators was on the scene on Sunday, looking into what the Albany Times-Union said was the deadliest crash in the region since 2005.

The crash occurred outside the Apple Barrel Country Store, and multiple people in the store’s parking lot were killed when the limousine sped down a hill and hit them, the store’s manager told the New York Times.
