ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A judge is set to consider whether to accept a plea deal in the criminal case of a 2018 limo crash near Albany that killed 20 people.

Nauman Hussain, who was charged in the crash in Schoharie, New York, will be the focus of a virtual conference on Thursday.

Hussain is the operator of the limo company and was the only person charged in connection to the deadly crash. He is charged with 20 counts of manslaughter and 20 counts of criminally negligent homicide.

Last year the NTSB put some of the blame on the state’s Department of Transportation and the DMV, citing poor oversight and not following up on repairs.

A state Senator has called for an investigation into both departments.
