A source tells Spectrum News that the New York State Department of Transportation has been ordered to do an emergency study on the intersection at the center of last Saturday's deadly limousine crash in Schoharie.
Twenty people died in the October 6 crash at the intersection of Routes 30 and 30-A. Authorities say the limo was operated by Saratoga County-based Prestige Limo.
We know the National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash, but we're told a preliminary report on the crash isn't expected for at least another week.
State police arrested Nauman Hussain, the operator of Prestige Limo and son of the company's owner, last week. The owner, Shahed Hussain, is currently in Pakistan. Nauman Hussain faces one count of criminally negligent homicide.
A DOT spokesperson released a statement Monday, saying, “Over the past week, DOT has been reviewing the circumstances surrounding the incident in support of NTSB’s and State Police's ongoing investigations and we continue to support those efforts.”
