Some victims lived in the small city.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families following this horrific tragedy", Fiore said. He's a Democrat from Amsterdam.

The limousine, built from a 2001 Ford Excursion, ran a stop sign at a T-shaped intersection at the bottom of a hill and slammed into an unoccupied SUV.

Some of their social media pages have already turned into unofficial memorials, as Amy Steenburg's page has.

The scrutiny is prompted by a tragic crash in NY - a limousine loaded with revelers bound for a 30th birthday celebration blew through a stop sign at the end of a highway and slammed into a parked SUV outside a store, killing all 18 people in the limo and two pedestrians. The state ordered the company, Prestige Limousine, shut down. The company said it was taking its cars off the road while conducting its own probe into the crash.

Many stretch limos "may lack certain basic safety features like the necessary number of side impact airbags, reinforced rollover protection bars, structurally sound frames and accessible emergency exits that can aid passengers and first responders in the event of a crash", Schumer's office said in a news release at the time.

But for reasons still unknown, the limo plowed through a stop sign, crashed into a parked SUV and caused the deadliest United States transportation accident in nearly a decade.

The limo charged through a highway intersection without stopping last Saturday afternoon, in Schoharie, New York, the police and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said. The person says that the other two victims were bystanders.

She's mourning the loss of two mothers.

Halse's sister, Karina Halse, told ABC News she had been texting with her sister as she got into the limo on Saturday. Before Amanda Halse received her sister's reply, she died in the crash.

The driver of a supersized limousine involved in a crash that killed 20 people outside an upstate country store wasn't properly licensed, and the limo failed a state safety inspection just last month and shouldn't have been on the road, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday. Schoharie Town Supervisor Alan Tavenner said Sunday the New York Department of Transportation had in recent years outlawed heavy trucks on the hill because of instances where runaway trucks lost their ability to apply the brakes down the steep grade.

"Prestige has a lot of questions to answer".

"Calls to the limousine company rang unanswered Monday".

The limo driver and all 17 passengers died, as did two pedestrians who were struck by the vehicle. Relatives said the group was headed to a birthday party.

Officials are investigating the crash, which occurred near the town of Schoharie in NY state on Saturday afternoon.

Mary Dyson died in Saturday's crash along with her husband, Rob.

She says he had "a golden heart" and "made you laugh so hard until you cried".
