SCHOHARIE (WENY) – The operator of the limo company that was involved in the deadly 2018 Schoharie crash has taken a plea deal and will not serve jail time.

According to CBS Albany, Prestige Limo operator Nauman Hussain has taken a plea deal and will serve five years of “heightened level probation”, two years of interim probation and 1,000 hours of community service.








Additionally, Hussain will be banned from owning, operating or working for any commercial transportation business.









In October 2018, a stretch limousine crashed in Schoharie County, killing 20 people, including the driver, all 17 passengers and two pedestrians. Investigators determined the crash was caused by a brake system failure due to inadequate maintenance by Prestige Limo.

Hussain was initially charged with 20 counts each of second-degree manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide.
