The guy that killed 20 people in NY drove 60 mph into a T intersection. Not for me.
18 people died in the limo (17 passengers, plus the driver), which was reportedly traveling at high speed down a country road, when the road dead-ended into a cafe parking lot, then a ravine.
This was a Ford Excursion stretch-conversion “party bus” style limo, so we can assume 17 passengers were not wearing seat belts while partying in the back.
Two pedestrians were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, and were struck and killed, when the limo was said to have blazed through the stop sign at Route 30 and 30A, continuing past the perpendicular roadway, hitting a parked car, then careening down a shallow ravine, where it came to rest, apparently right-side-up, (based on photos of the scene).
Eyewitness accounts said the limo may have been going as fast as 60MPH when it hit the ravine, so you can imagine the kind of forces passengers would suffer (hitting a wall of Earth at 60MPH, while not wearing seatbelts).
