Limo crash kills 20 people in upstate New York

A limousine failed to stop at an intersection in upstate New York and struck a parked vehicle, killing 20 people in the deadliest transportation accident in the United States in nearly a decade, authorities said Sunday.

The crash happened shortly before 2 p.m. ET Saturday in Schoharie, New York State Police First Deputy Superintendent Chris Fiore told reporters. The 2001 Ford Excursion was traveling southwest on State Route 30 when it didn’t stop at the intersection with State Route 30 A and collided with an SUV in the parking lot, Fiore said.
All 18 people in the limo were killed, including the driver, Fiore said. Two pedestrians near the unoccupied 2015 Toyota Highlander in the parking lot were also killed, he said. The people who died were all adults.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families following this horrific tragedy,” Fiore said.
Authorities are still notifying the families of victims and declined to release the victims’ names, according to Fiore. Read more
