NEW YORK STATE — We have an update on the tragic limo crash case in Schoharie.
The trial of the limo company operator has been pushed back to next year at the earliest after a judge granted a 60-day extension for the defense to file a motion.
The trial was previously expected to begin in September.
The defense team has been going over the limo involved in the deadly October crash piece by piece.
The attorney for Nauman Hussain says his experts will take as long as they need to inspect the limo.
“We obviously are going to be conducting a very thorough examination of the braking system. I listened to the testimony from the State Senate hearings and I know certainly the concern and some of the discussion that has been going on with the vehicle. I can only guess that that will be a part of the people’s case,” said defense attorney Lee Kindlon.
Hussain was indicted last month on 20 counts of criminally negligent homicide and 20 counts of second-degree manslaughter.
