Tuesday marks a somber day in the Capital Region. Two years ago, 20 people were killed in one of the worst accidents in New York's history.

The Schoharie limousine crash happened on October 6, 2018. In 2019, a memorial was unveiled at the crash site.

The National Transportation Safety Board’s final report came out last week. It finds the operator of Prestige Limousine, the New York State Department of Transportation, and the State Department of Motor Vehicles are all to blame for the crash.

The limo had faulty brakes and should not have been on the road. The NTSB says DOT and DMV contributed to the crash by not stopping the company from operating.

The limo company operator, Nauman Hussain, is facing criminal charges.
