Limo Company Operator Sentenced for 2018 Schoharie Crash


The limousine company operator responsible for the 2018 Schoharie crash that killed the driver, 17 passengers and 2 pedestrians, including those from the Finger Lakes, has been sentenced.

Nauman Hussain will spend the next five to 15 years of his life in prison after being sentenced Wednesday. Earlier this month, he was found guilty of 20 counts of manslaughter – one for each life lost in the crash.

Moravia resident Brian Hough and his father in law, along with Seneca Falls native Rob Dyson, his wife, and her three sisters, were among those killed on October 16, 2018 when the limo crashed in the Town of Schoharie.

It was later learned that the limo had failed a safety inspection and the driver didn’t have the appropriate license to operate the vehicle.

Hussain originally accepted a plea deal that would have kept him out of prison but a judge refused the offer.
