According to news reports from reliable sources, a total of 20 people lost their lives on the 6th of October in what has been dubbed by authorities to be the worst ground transportation accident in the United States since 2009. The 2001 Ford Excursion limousine was ferrying 17 occupants to Amy Steenburg’s (one of the occupants) birthday party; Amy had just turned 30 years old. At a T-shaped intersection in Upstate, New York, along Route 30, the limousine failed to slow down and crashed into a parked SUV, hit two pedestrians, and finally came to a stop in a steep ditch where a large tree trunk now lies split in half as the last point of impact. Amongst those who died in this tragic incident include four sisters, two brothers, and two sets of newlyweds.
According to unverified sources, pending further investigations by authorities, the chauffeur of the limo had not acquired proper licensing to operate the vehicle, the vehicle itself had recently failed a routine operational inspection, and one of the passengers had sent a text message to her cousin complaining about the state of the vehicle moments before the incident occurred. The actual cause of the accident is however yet to be conclusively determined.
