The oversized limo involved in the deadly Schoharie crash was able to avoid inspections by the New York State Department of Transportation.
According to the Albany Times Union, the limo was improperly inspected by auto shops licensed by the DMV.
The issue here: the limo was able to bypass DOT inspections. Auto shops are banned from issuing inspection stickers to oversized limos.
The DMV refused to answer how the company was able to get those inspection stickers.
Twenty people were killed back on Oct. 6 when the oversized limo crashed into a ravine. Following the incident, the operator of the limo company was charged with criminally negligent homicide.
