  • 20 killed after limousine crashes in upstate New York, authorities...

Four tight-knit sisters were among 20 dead in a weekend limousine crash in upstate NY that's been called one of the deadliest ground-traffic crashes in the U.S.in the past decade.

The group was reportedly on their way to a birthday party for Amy Steenburg - who also died in the crash, a relative told NBC News. She and Axel Steenburg just married in June.

All 18 passengers inside the limousine, as well as the two pedestrians, were killed in the crash, making it the deadliest transportation-related accident in the US since 2009, according to the National Transportation Safety Board.

The couple lived in Amsterdam with their dog.

"I just wanted to say Axel Steenburg I love you more than words can say!" "You are such an incredible man and entertain all my insane ideas".

A total of 20 people were killed over the weekend in the U.S. state of NY after an SUV-style limousine careened out of control, local police said on Sunday.

He worked for GlobalFoundries, a semiconductor and manufacturing company. He is survived by his 10-year-old daughter and 14-year-old stepson, reported the Times.

'I saw a lot of people here at the Apple Barrel out in the parking lot. "He made you laugh so hard until you cried".

"He will be sorely missed by his sister and her children", Douglass said. "He was very sweet and very kind and very amusing". "He also financially supported the household and was also a father figure to his much younger brother". "They were two very young, attractive people" who "had everything going for them".

Senate Leader John Flanagan described Cushing Monday as an "extraordinary" employee and "wonderful young man".

A woman killed in the nation's deadliest transportation accident in almost a decade wrote a sweet post on Facebook commemorating her love to her husband just days before the crash.

It's not known whether the limousine involved in the Schoharie crash had any of those deficiencies.

In a note posted to its Facebook page, Apple Barrell said it would remain open on Sunday and would be collecting donations for volunteer services who first responded to the crash.

It was unclear how many other people, if any, were injured. "And I will always have her in my heart". "I'm so grateful they knew other and they were with each other", Halse's sister, Karina, said. The sisters had been texting on Saturday as Amanda Halse got into the limo to head to the birthday party.

Amanda Halse was an artist. She was one of the four sisters killed.

Some of the victims were veterans, including Mary Dyson and Matthew Coons.

"They did the responsible thing getting a limo so they wouldn't have to drive anywhere", Amy's aunt, Barbara Douglas, told reporters on Sunday.

Abby Jackson, was a teacher in the Amsterdam School District, according to the Times Union.

"My niece was four years older than him, and she said she found the love of her life", she said. Abigail was among the four sisters killed. Both were killed. She was an administrative assistant at St. Mary's Healthcare in Amsterdam. A Facebook fundraiser created for her parents, Tom and Linda King, had raised more than $132,000 as of Monday evening.

Shane and Erin McGowan married in June, and her aunt said they were "two of the sweetest souls you could ever meet".

Torres remembered the love he saw between Erin and Shane McGowan. But state police say they seized four Prestige cars, including the one that crashed. "There's several couples that have been married the last two years". They met through Abeling's daughter.
