Roads where limo crash killed 20 are a menace, store says

Somewhere along the way, Abeling said, the bus apparently broke down and the limousine was the replacement, she said. In fact, all three of Prestige Limousine's vehicles had violations when they were inspected last month, records show.

"This is an area where we clearly have a gap that needs to be addressed and it's incumbent upon state policy makers and the feds to work together and address this", she said. "It was a nice sendoff, I guess, because that would be the last time I would ever see her in person". Their godfather, Patrick Cushing, also was killed.

According to the New York Times, the limousine lost control while going through an intersection that residents of the area say is notoriously unsafe. "He loved, hugged, and cried with his friends and family like their problems were his, and celebrated with those same family and friends like our successes were his personal goals", he said.

A post on Axel Steenburg's Facebook page, which was offering a table and bed to anyone who wanted them, has become a place where strangers here and overseas could leave condolences.

"They were both just soul mates because they just radiated love and beauty and how a marriage should be", Valerie Abeling told CNN. "Their lives were just cut short too soon".

Erin and Shane McGowan, also newlyweds, died in the crash.

Autopsies were being performed on the dead but authorities didn't say whether the limo occupants were wearing seat belts, nor did they give any indication as to the speed of the vehicle. You are such an fantastic man and entertain all my.

"It's tragic. terrible. I can't even begin to even explain".

Amanda Halse, 26, and her boyfriend, Patrick Cushing, 31, were also reportedly in the vehicle at the time of the crash.

The group included four sisters and two brothers.

Douglas' face grew increasingly somber as she thought of her nieces' three children. "He made their life very joyful with his very sweet disposition".

"They did the responsible thing getting a limo so they wouldn't have to drive anywhere", their aunt, Barbara Douglas, said Sunday. "It's hard and so tragic", Vertucci told the Times Union of Albany.

She did not want to name them publicly but added: "They were wonderful girls".

The sister of one of the women killed on Saturday said her heart is "sunken" and she's in a "place where I've never felt this type of pain before".

Amanda Rivenburg was close to her parents and remembered by friends and coworkers for her sense of humor.

Some relatives of the dead shed tears as local officials expressed solidarity with them at Monday's vigil in Amsterdam, New York.

"Thoughts are with the family and friends from here in the United Kingdom", read one comment.

"The investigation is STILL going on and the facts are not verified", his niece, Courtney Lisinicchia, wrote on Facebook.
