New court documents released in connection to Schoharie limo crash

Schoharie County District Attorney Susan Mallery is making a case to the judge why the case against the operator of the limousine involved in last year’s limo crash that killed 20 should not be dismissed.

Because of the size of the file, the court was unable to send the District Attorney’s court filing to most news outlets. But the Times Union is reporting on the document, saying Susan Mallery’s office finds no reason to dismiss the charges against limo operator Nauman Hussain. He’s awaiting trial for manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide.

According to the paper, the District Attorney’s office response to the defense request for dismissal revealed new evidence that Hussain ignored those who knew firsthand that the vehicle was unsafe as far back as a year before the crash.

One of those people according to the documents obtained by the TU was another former driver for Hussain who said his foot went “… pretty much to the floor…” when he tried to stop the same limo while driving on prom night, finally pumping the brake pedal to get it to stop.
