Legal filing in limo crash: State failed to fix deadly intersection

ALBANY The family of one of the 20 people killed in the Oct. 6 Schoharie County limo crash at Routes 30 and 30A says New York state is at fault for failing to properly fix the treacherous intersection.

A notice was filed Monday in the Court of Claims by Salvatore Ferlazzo, attorney for the family of Amanda Rivenburg, who along with 16 friends was riding in the 2001 stretch Ford Excursion when it went through a stop sign at the intersection and hurtled into the parking lot of the Apple Barrel Country Store before barreling into a ditch.

The 17 passengers, the driver and two bystanders in the parking lot died in the worst transportation disaster in the U.S. in nearly a decade.

Ferlazzo, with the Albany law firm Girvin & Ferlazzo, had previously sued the company that owned the Excursion, Prestige Limousine of Wilton, and its owner, Shahed Hussain, as well as his son Nauman, who has been charged with one count of criminally negligent homicide.
