An upstate man said he and his wife rented the same limo and driver involved in a crash that killed 20 people in Schoharie, NY and claims the vehicle “shoulda been in the scrap yard.”
Andrew LaRose told Albany’s WNYT-TV that limo was rusty and held together by duct tape when driver Scott Lisinicchia showed up for his wedding one year ago.
“Air conditioner was broken, there was duct tape that was painted white, rocker panels were painted, it looked like it had been through a chop shop,” LaRose told the network.
The couple also said Lisinicchia was late picking them up from the reception and drove erratically with another passenger in the front.
“I noticed there were empty beer cans in the back. I noticed that he had a second passenger sitting shotgun right next to him,” he said.
“Then I asked him ‘who was this’ and he got pretty upset with me.”
While driving, Lisinicchia missed an exit and went in reverse right on the highway, La Rose added.
He made numerous complaints to the company, he said, and eventually was reimbursed for half the cost.
The newlywed said after the crash in Schoharie, he looked for pictures showing the same vehicle and driver at his house.
