Shop manager says brake work not done on limo before crash



ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A former repair shop manager says brake work was billed but not performed on the stretch limousine that crashed five months later in upstate New York, killing 20 people.

The former manager of a Mavis Discount Tire shop told investigators in a Sept. 17 interview that a brake master cylinder was invoiced but not installed at the time of a May 2018 inspection. The 2001 Ford Excursion limo blew through an intersection and crashed in rural Schoharie County on Oct. 6.

The interview was disclosed by Schoharie County District Attorney Susan Mallery this week in a letter to lawyers for limo company operator Nauman Hussain. The defense then renewed a motion to dismiss manslaughter and homicide charges against Hussain.

Prosecutors allege Hussain allowed an improperly licensed driver to operate an "unserviceable" vehicle.
