Federal investigators are scheduled to release a final report Wednesday on what caused a stretch limousine to careen through an intersection two years ago in Schoharie, killing 20 in the deadliest road transportation disaster since 2005.


The National Transportation Safety Board is set to meet virtually at 9:30 a.m. to vote on its findings, the probable cause of the crash and any recommendations, as well as any changes to a draft final report, according to the board's agenda.


The board's report will be issued just shy of the anniversary of the deadly Oct. 6, 2018 wreck, which killed the driver, 17 passengers and two bystanders when a 2001 Ford Excursion limousine blew through a stop sign and crashed into an SUV parked outside the Apple Barrel Country Store.


The passengers — which included four sisters, three of their husbands and other friends and family members — were headed to a brewery in Cooperstown from their hometown of Amsterdam, about 35 miles west of Albany.

Since the crash, the victims' families have joined together to push for reforms to he limousine industry and New York traffic law.


After lawmakers did little to enact reform in 2019, the families broke through in 2020, convincing the state Legislature to enact a series of new measures, including a law requiring all limousines to have a seatbelt for each rear passenger.


New limos will be required to meet the seatbelt requirement on or after Jan. 1, 2021, while existing limos will have to be retrofitted by 2023, according to the new law.


The families of the victims have filed various civil lawsuits against Hussain; his father, Shahed, who owns the company; a Mavis Discount Tire shop that inspected the limousine and performed brake work; and the state of New York.
