What we know about the fatal limo crash that killed 20 people in upstate New York

ALBANY — State Police and federal authorities planned to continue their investigation Monday into a limousine crash 35 miles outside Albany that killed 20 people Saturday afternoon, the worst transportation accident in the U.S in nine years.

Police offered few details about what the chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board called a “horrific crash” in the town of Schoharie.

But media reports and interviews detailed the devastation.

Four sisters in the limousine were killed; so two were a newly married couple in their 30s; as were the driver and two pedestrians who were visiting at a popular country store, where the vehicle barreled through the parking lot.

“It’s tragic. Horrible. I can’t even begin to even explain,” Valerie Abeling told The Washington Post, confirming that her 34-year-old niece, Erin McGowan, and her new husband, Shane McGowan, 30, were among the dead.

The couple were married in June.
