That is pretty consistent with what I have heard reported since the accident.

2 new additions to the story personally announced by Dictator Cuomo.

The "Limo" was inspected last month and FAILED - no explanation of what items failed.

The driver was NOT licensed to operate that Class of vehicle.

More information will begin to leak soon.

Another leak- One of the passengers texted minutes before impact that the "Limo" was a complete rattletrap. They were in the "Limo" because the bus originally chartered has Issues and the "Limo" was substituted.

This will be an extensive investigation.
It is now reported one of the victims was a staff employee of a State Senator.

The "limo" owner's carrier authority has been pulled at this point.

I got a buck says the owner of the property where the "limo" came to rest and the contractor who dug the ditch and built the berm will be getting sued too for the ditch & berm being there.

My observation is that the Suv in question was a 240" ext. or equates to a 40 ft limousine, built by Ultra or Craftsman both out of business and they weren't designed for 20 people. seating was more likely knee to knee , brake fade is common problem with conversions of this size. long limousine's or super stretch's have always been a topic with in the limousine industry.

Cork's out of the bottle!

DOT is haulin azz out of the way by announcing the entire fleet of the company is now impounded.
They have also admitted the company has been under investigation for some time.

The owner is last known to be in Pakistan

Nobody knows where the driver records are.

Looks like the Feds are next in line at the Spill your guts line.
The owner may or may not have testified for them in some terrorist thing.

The only absolute at this moment is 20 people are DEAD.
