New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he has “directed state agencies to provide every resource necessary” to help in the investigation of a weekend vehicle crash in Schoharie, in upstate New York, that killed 20 people.

The manager of a store that sits at the intersection where the crash occurred says it’s a known danger spot.

Police say the limo, with 18 people inside, failed to stop at a T-junction and struck an empty, parked SUV and two pedestrians.

Relatives say the limousine was carrying four sisters, relatives and friends to a 30th birthday celebration when it crashed Saturday, killing all 18 in the limo and two pedestrians.

The NTSB is investigating the crash.
