ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The family of one of 20 people killed in a limousine crash claims in a legal filing against New York state that the intersection where the accident occurred was unsafe.
The claim notice was filed Monday by an attorney representing the family of Amanda Rivenburg, one of 18 passengers in the limousine that barreled through a stop sign and crashed west of Albany on Oct. 6. Two pedestrians also died.
According to the filing, the limo had been cited for code violations and shouldn't have been on the road. The claim lists the state transportation and motor vehicle departments. State officials said the agencies acted appropriately
The limousine company's operator, Nauman Hussain, has pleaded not guilty to criminally negligent homicide.
Rivenburg's family had previously sued Hussain and his father, the limo company's owner.
