Twenty people are dead after their limousine got into a vehicle collision in upstate New York.
On Saturday (Oct. 6), police arrived to the accident at around 2 p.m., which was located at the intersection of State Route 30 and State Route 30A in Schoharie, police said.
On Sunday, police announced 20 people were killed in the crash, but have yet to release names or contact their families. Several special teams like the “go-team,” which is a group of investigators, is expected to be on the scene, according to the The National Transportation Safety Board.
“What we can tell you at this point is that it is a two-vehicle, multi fatalities as a result of this crash,” Captain Richard O’Brien of the New York State Police told ABC station WTEN Saturday. “The investigation is very preliminary. It’s in its infancy stages.”
Officials will also put the accident back together to fully analyze the crash. “We have several units here investigating the details from the New York State police, including our reconstruction unit. We have used our drone this evening and our facial identification unit as well,” O’Brien said Saturday evening.
