October 09, 2018 01:28 PM

There are reports that the victims may have been concerned by the condition of the limousine. The New York Times reports one of the victims sent a text to a friend saying, "the motor is making everyone deaf."

According to Governor Cuomo, the driver didn't have the proper license and the limo failed inspection and shouldn't have been on the road. State police are also looking into that. They are asking anyone who may have been in contact with the victims via texting or on social media to call them. The number to call is (518) 630-1700.

Meanwhile, NewsChannel 13 has spoken with the limo company owner before.

Back in 2009, Shahed Malik Hussain agreed to let Mark into his Wilton office without a camera, when NewsChannel 13 was investigating the rundown Crest Inn Suites and Cottages.

Beyond the allegedly faulty wiring, unsafe water, and raw sewage dumping at his property, he told Mark he was an FBI informant.

According to our past reporting, Hussain's job was to infiltrate potential terror cells.

Hussain became an informant as part of a deal with the FBI to avoid the punishment after being charged in a scheme to get immigrants driver's licenses.

NewsChannel 13 made several attempts to get in touch with Hussain and were unable.
