SCHOHARIE — The National Transportation Safety Board continues its investigation into the limousine crash that killed 20 people in upstate New York over the weekend. Meanwhile, the community continues to mourn the loss of their family, friends, and neighbors.

Twenty crosses line up in the parking lot where 20 lives were taken on Saturday. The display comes a day after thousands of residents gathered in Amsterdam for a candlelight vigil. But as night turned to morning, questions remain about what led up the car-turned-limo to crash on Saturday.

There have been four accidents reported at the intersection where the crash took place since the state changed the roadway in 2008, according to the New York Times.

Meantime, in a statement from their attorney Lee Kindlon, Prestige Limousine said:

“We are performing a detailed internal investigation to determine the cause of the accident and the steps we can take in order to prevent future accidents.”

The limo driver did not have the proper license to operate the vehicle that crashed and the governor’s office says the limo failed a safety inspection last month. But questions continue to swirl about whether or not the limousine industry needs more regulation.

Police said they have seized three other vehicles from Prestige Limousine.
