Limo firm says it’s taken its cars off the road
LATHAM, N.Y. (AP) – The New York company that owns a supersized limousine involved in a crash that killed 20 people says it has taken its cars off the road while probing what caused the wreck.
The New York Times says Prestige Limousine issued a statement Monday saying it’s conducting “a detailed internal investigation.” The Gansevoort, New York-based company says it also has met with state and federal authorities and plans to do so again.
Prestige Limousine expressed condolences to relatives of Saturday’s crash in Schoharie (skoh-HAYR’-ee).
The firm says it pulled its cars from the road voluntarily. State police say they seized four Prestige cars, including the one that crashed.
The 19-seater limo ran a stop sign and hit a parked SUV. Two pedestrians and all 18 people in the limo died.
