Nauman Hussain and Lee Kindlon

A Schoharie County grand jury has handed up indictments against the operator of the limo company involved in the deadliest US transportation disaster in nearly a decade. Nauman Hussain faces 20 counts of second degree manslaughter and 20 counts of criminally negligent homicide. 17 passengers, the driver, and two pedestrians in the parking lot of the Apple Barrel Country Store and Cafe were killed when the Prestige owned limo failed to stop at the intersection of Routes 30 and 30A last October. State Police said the 2001 Ford Excursion stretch limousine should not have been on the road due to safety concerns. Hussain's attorney, Lee Kindlonexpects his client to plead not guilty in court. He is scheduled to appear on Wednesday.
