Prosecutor: Limo co. operator had packed bags when arrested

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A prosecutor says the New York limousine company operator charged with criminally negligent homicide in a crash that killed 20 people had packed bags with him when he was arrested.

Nauman Hussain showed little emotion as he was arraigned Wednesday in Cobleskill. He didn’t comment as he left court after posting $150,000 bond.

A judge entered a not-guilty plea for him.

Hussain’s lawyer, Lee Kindlon has said his 28-year-old client isn’t guilty and police rushed to judgment as they investigated Saturday’s limo crash in Schoharie. Two pedestrians and 18 people in the limo were killed.

Schoharie County District Attorney Susan Mallery says Hussain had luggage with him when his car was stopped Wednesday near Albany.

Kindlon says Hussain felt unsafe at home because he’d gotten threats.
