NTSB: Limo Crash That Killed 20 People Was ‘Deadliest Transportation-Related Accident’ Since 2009

The limo crash that killed 20 people in New York on Saturday was the “deadliest transportation-related accident” in the nation since 2009, according to the National Transportation Safety Board.

NTSB is investigating what caused the limo to crash into another vehicle and pedestrians near Albany.

Killed in the crash were 18 people in the limo and two bystanders.

The limo was packed with people from a wedding party.

“This is one of the biggest losses of life that we’ve seen in a long, long time,” NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt told local NBC affiliate WNYT. 

For reasons that aren’t yet clear, the limo failed to stop at an intersection and careened into the parking lot of an Apple Barrel store and café.

“My heart breaks for the 20 people who lost their lives in this horrific accident,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said in a statement. “I commend the first responders who arrived on the scene and worked through the night to help. State police are working with federal and local authorities to investigate the crash, and I have directed state agencies to provide every resource necessary to aid in this investigation and determine what led to this tragedy.”

Federal authorities are investigating whether on-duty Detroit police provided limo service and security to a swanky sex club a few blocks from the department’s Central District headquarters, the Detroit News reports.

Citing sources familiar with the probe, the Detroit News wrote that a federal investigation is underway following complaints about police helping the swingers’ club while on duty.

“The feds were asking me about a group of officers who supposedly were giving limo service to people at this sex club while they were on duty,” one Detroit police official told the Detroit News. “The big sticking point they were concentrating on was whether the officers were on-duty when they were driving people to and from this club.”

The probe began following complaints that the Forest Club was selling alcohol without a license.

Secret Service to Unveil Hybrid Limo for Obama

Good to see there’s some sense of energy conservation going on.

WASHINGTON
— As a candidate, Barack Obama promoted hybrid cars.
As president, he’ll be handed the keys to one. Sort of.
Shortly after taking the oath of office, Obama will climb into the Mother of All Hybrids — part car, part truck and, from the looks of it, part tank.
In keeping with recent tradition, the Secret Service will place a brand-new presidential limousine into service January 20 to drive the new president on the 2-mile jaunt down Pennsylvania Avenue during the inaugural parade.
Already, spy photos of the limo — with patches of gray primer — have leaked out. And already, the reviews:
“Ugly as sin,” says one car enthusiast on an auto Web site. “Can’t we make a hotter ride for our pres?”
