Deal Reached Between NTSB & Schoharie County Over October Limo Crash

After nearly four months of haggling, the National Transportation Safety Board is getting access to the limousine that crashed in Schoharie back in October, killing 20 people.

Under terms of the deal, the NTSB agrees not to share the results of its investigation until the criminal trial in the case is over with.

Attorney Lee Kindlon is representing Nauman Hussein, the son of Prestige Limo owner Shaheed Hussein.

In the meantime, Nauman is being served with the first civil suit in the case.

Attorney Sal Ferlazzo, who is representing the family of Amanda Rivenburg, personally served papers to Nauman at the Schoharie County Courthouse on Tuesday.

In the 11-page lawsuit, father and son are listed as the only named defendants.

Ferlazzo says they also want Shahed to be accountable.

Shaheed has been in Pakistan since shortly after the crash.

While there are criminal charges pending against Nauman, Ferlazzo says that has no bearing on his civil case, adding there is "clear negligence" here.
