New York Limousine Crash Kills 20 People, Wedding Party Involved, State Police Say

At least 20 people are dead and several more injured after a wedding limousine crash near Schoharie, New York, State Police told The Albany Times Union Sunday.

Eighteen of the victims in the were inside the limousine and two others were bystanders, the Associated Press reports. "Multiple fatalities" were reported by first responders after the limo sped down a hill and crashed into people outside the Apple Barrel Country Store and Cafe. The manager of the store, Jessica Kirby, told The New York Times multiple customers standing in the parking lot were killed when the wedding limo struck them coming down a Route 30 hill.

"All fatal," she told The Times via telephone Sunday. "That limo was coming down that hill probably over 60 miles per hour. I don't want to describe the scene. It's not something I want to think about."

Police said they will hold an evening press conference to reveal details of the crash and the names of victims will not be revealed until family members have been notified.

Multiple ambulances, three fire companies and two helicopters were dispatched to the scene in Schoharie, a small town of about 3,300 people and 160 miles upstate from New York City. The wedding limousine was traveling along State Route 30 and State Route 30A, according to the NTSB.
