At least 20 die when wedding party limousine crashes

Twenty people have died in a tragic accident in NY, which is said to have involved a limousine with a wedding party on board.

"The New York State Police confirm 20 fatalities in Saturday's crash in Schoharie".

Photos from Times-Union photographer Peter R. Barber showed a white van-style stretch limousine lodged in a ditch, along with police and emergency vehicles that had converged upon the scene.

The crash was the deadliest in the capital's region since an Ethan Allen tour boat sunk on Lake George and killed 20 people.

The names of the victims have not yet been released.

Linda Riley of Schenectady, New York, says she was in a parked vehicle at the Apple Barrel Country Store in Schoharie (skoh-HAY'-ree) on Saturday when she heard the noise. On Sunday, the store posted that it was open "and could use your hugs".

Kirby said she did not see the people inside the limousine and she could not describe the make or model of the other vehicle involved because it was "a mess".

Every match is different. "We are going up in the table little by little giving us a better position for our objective". We need them to support us. "To show our quality and work, then together we can be happy like today".

Local media reported that the vehicle sped down a hill and crashed into bystanders in Schoharie County, New York.

Liz Gallup works at the Apple Barrel and has lived in the area for nearly 60 years.

A witness who lives down the street from the store told ABC News 10 that they saw people in the Apple Barrel parking lot and "then I heard screaming".

"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", Cuomo said in a statement.
