Limo Owner May Be Charged With Criminally Negligent Homicide

Albany, N.Y. - A son of the owner of Limo that crashed in Schoharie, killing 20 people on Saturday, is likely to be charged with criminally negligent homicide. 

Prestige Limo owner Shahed Hussain's son, Nauman Hussain is being booked by the New York State Police, according to his lawyer. State Police took Nauman Hussain into custody after what Troopers describe as a "controlled traffic stop"  on I-787. 

Nauman's father is out of the country. 

Since the crash the companies safety record has been cause for concern. The limo twice failed inspections this year. A March inspection revealed that the vehicle's hydraulic brakes were not working properly. DOT says the vehicle was not ready for the roads and a out of service sticker was placed on the vehicle.  The driver, Scott  Lisinicchia ( Lis Nicky uh  ) was ticketed for driving without a proper license to operate a limo just weeks before the crash and did not have a valid license at the time of the crash.
