As Nauman Hussain, the operator of the limo company at the center of the crash that killed 20 people serves his state prison sentence, his family property in Wilton has been sold to satisfy an unrelated court judgment.

Hussain’s family owned the Crest Inn Suites on Route 9 in Wilton, a long-stay motel for people getting public assistance. They often ran their limo company from that location.

The Hussains were often at odds with code enforcement, the health department and residents over the condition of the property.

NewsChannel 13 has learned that the county took over the property and sold it for $95,000 to satisfy a legal claim against the Hussains. NewsChannel 13 checked with the Saratoga County Clerk and found out the buyer is Amjad Mughal, and an LLC called Ali 123.

NewsChannel 13’s Mark Mulholland called the number listed on the deed to find out what their plans are for the property, but haven’t heard back. Wilton’s supervising building inspector Mark Mykins said the new owner has interest in reopening the motel, but cautioned that it will need a lot of work to make it safe for guests.

Nauman Hussain is serving his five-to-15-year manslaughter sentence at Elmira Correctional Facility. He’s eligible for parole in May 2028.
