  • 20 people killed in car crash involving limo in upstate New York

Everyone inside the limousine, including the driver, died in the crash, and all those killed Saturday were adults, police added. Two pedestrians standing nearby were fatally struck, Fiore said. Manager Jessica Kirby said in an interview that it's only the latest accident to happen there.

On Monday, a law-enforcement official told ABC News that Lisnicchia was behind the wheel of the stretch limo that blew past a stop sign and plowed into the parking lot at the Apple Barrel Country Store & Cafe parking lot in Schoharie, New York, on Saturday afternoon. Abeling said in an interview from upstate NY where her family was gathered. Officials, including Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., had pushed for better federal safety regulations for limousines after the crash, citing "significant gaps" in the safety standards for the vehicles - which are often modified using aftermarket parts and techniques.

Four of those killed were sisters, three of whom died with their husbands.

Amy, a nurse, was one of the four sisters killed the crash. Douglas says the sisters "did the responsible thing getting a limo so they wouldn't have to drive anywhere". Three of the women were with their husbands.

Four sisters on their way to a birthday party have been identified as among the 20 fatalities from a vehicle crash in upstate NY that happened on October 6.

Valerie Abeling, the aunt of victim Erin Vertucci, said her 34-year-old niece and her niece's new husband, 30-year-old Shane McGowan, were good people.

Shortly after the white stretch limousine arrived, McGowan texted Abeling's daughter to say the vehicle appeared to be in awful condition.

"He will be sorely missed by his sister and her children", Douglass said.

"My niece was four years older than him, and she said she found the love of her life", she said.

The National Transportation Safety Board and State Police were investigating the crash.

They are among the 20 people who died in Saturday's limousine crash in upstate NY. Some 20 minutes later, the limousine came over a steep hill and headed down toward a T-shaped intersection in Schoharie.

A witness says a crash that killed 20 people in upstate NY "sounded like an explosion".

The local school district confirmed to The Associated Press that Abby Jackson was a teacher there.

She says she got out and saw a body on the ground by her vehicle, and broken tree branches everywhere.

The intersection has always been a concern for locals, reported The Associated Press.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D, said state agencies should "provide every resource necessary" to investigate the crash. The person was not authorized to discuss the preliminary information publicly and spoke Sunday on the condition of anonymity.

"Sometimes, people just don't follow the law" that already exists, he said.

State police said the crash was reported just before 2 p.m. on Saturday.

According to the New York Times, the limousine lost control while going through an intersection that residents of the area say is notoriously unsafe.

The driver of a limousine carrying the four sisters and other revelers celebrating a 30th birthday barreled through an intersection, ignoring a stop sign, and slammed into an SUV parked outside a store, killing all 18 people inside the limo.
