SCHOHARIE, N.Y. (AP) — The National Transportation Safety Board says it is investigating a deadly crash involving a limousine that took place near a busy tourist spot in upstate New York.
NTSB investigators on Sunday were making their way to Schoharie (skoh-HAY’-ree), about 170 miles north of New York City.
New York State Police say two vehicles were involved in the crash Saturday afternoon shortly before 2 p.m. at the intersection of state routes 30 and 30A. The limousine had been carrying a wedding party, reported The Albany Times Union.
Authorities confirmed on Sunday that at least 20 people died in the crash. The names of the victims have not yet been released. It was unclear whether those killed were in the vehicles or at the Apple Barrel Country Store, which is located at the intersection where the crash occurred.
Apple Barrel Country Store posted a message on Facebook saying it was open on Sunday “and could use your hugs.”
