Limousine Passengers In New York May Be Required To Wear Seatbelts


(Schoharie, NY) -- Nearly a year after a limo crash in Schoharie left 20 people dead, including an Ulster County man, the NTSB has released a new report on the tragedy.

In it, officials said some of the passengers in the vehicle may have survived if they were wearing seat belts. Most of the belts in the 2006 Ford Excursion were under the seats and not visible to passengers. The NTSB is now recommending the state make it mandatory that all motor vehicle passengers wear seat belts. Yesterday's report does not reveal a final conclusion about what caused the crash.
