Media briefing following Schoharie Limousine Crash Board Meeting


WASHINGTON (Sept. 29, 2020) ­– National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Robert Sumwalt conducted a brief, virtual, question and answer session for the media following completion of Tuesday’s board meeting for the investigation of the fatal Schoharie, New York, limousine crash. The crash happened Oct. 6, 2018, when the Prestige Limousine and chauffeur Service limousine, traveling south on New York state Route 30, failed to effectively slow the limousine while traveling down a hill toward the T-intersection of New York routes 30 and 30A. The limousine reached a speed of more than 100 mph, proceeded past the stop sign, crossed the intersection and entered the driveway of a restaurant parking lot. The limousine then struck an unoccupied SUV that subsequently struck and killed two pedestrians. The limousine continued across the driveway and into a ravine where it struck an earthen embankment and several trees. All 18 occupants of the limousine died in the accident.
