As investigators piece together what caused the limo crash that killed 20 people in upstate NY, more details are coming out about the 17 passengers, who had gotten together to celebrate a birthday.

Four of those killed were sisters, three of whom died with their husbands.

All 18 passengers inside the limousine, as well as the two pedestrians, were killed in the crash, making it the deadliest transportation-related accident in the USA since 2009, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. Douglas says the sisters "did the responsible thing getting a limo so they wouldn't have to drive anywhere". Four sisters who had always held a tight bond with one another, but in an instant all four were gone in a horrific vehicle crash that claimed the lives of 20 people Saturday afternoon.

The families of McGowen and her husband Shane McGowan, who were both in the limo Saturday, are also still grabbling with the news that the couple, who had just gotten married in June, is now gone.

Speaking through tears, Valerie Abeling said her niece, Erin Vertucci, was among the victims. Abeling said her own daughter had been invited along but couldn't go.

Abeling said the group was heading to Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown - located about 43 miles away - to celebrate the 30th birthday of Vertucci and McGowan's friend, who got married last month. "They had their whole lives ahead of them", she said, according to the news organization.

The Schoharie crash was the deadliest USA transportation accident since 2009.

A limousine crash in upstate NY on Saturday killed 20 people, officials have said. Two bystanders also were killed. But luxury cars converted to limos, like the one in Saturday's crash, often lack such safety components as side-impact air bags, reinforced rollover protection bars and accessible emergency exits. Authorities say all the occupants died. Schoharie Town Supervisor Alan Tavenner said Sunday the New York Department of Transportation had in recent years outlawed heavy trucks on the hill because of instances where runaway trucks lost their ability to apply the brakes down the steep grade.

A witness says a crash that killed 20 people in upstate NY "sounded like an explosion".

In total, 20 victims were killed, all adults, and 18 of the victims were in the limousine, including the driver, and the two pedestrians. The person was not authorized to discuss the preliminary information publicly and spoke Sunday on the condition of anonymity. "There's so many people involved".

State police said the crash was reported just before 2 p.m. on Saturday.

An afternoon news conference is planned.
