Police have arrested the son of the man who owns Prestige Limousine, the company that owned the limo involved in a horrific crash that left 20 people dead in upstate New York. Nauman Hussain was running the day-to-day operations of the company while his father, Shahed Hussain, was in Pakistan. According to CNY, the younger Hussain will be charged with criminally negligent homicide.
The limousine involved in the crash had failed two state inspections and was not allowed to be on the road at the time of the accident. The limo driver, Scott Lisinicchi, was pulled over by a state trooper in late August while driving the same vehicle and was cited for operating it without a proper license.
"The trooper also took steps to ensure that the vehicle was taken off the road, returned to its original location and directed the driver not to drive the vehicle," State Police said.
Investigators are still working to figure out what caused the tragic accident. They are trying to determine whether it was driver error, a mechanical issue with the limousine, or a combination of both.
