17 Bound For Ommegang,

But Tragedy Intervened

COOPERSTOWN – Brewery Ommegang has confirmed it was the destination for the 17 members of the birthday party who were killed in the Schoharie limo crash that claimed 20 lives on Saturday, Oct. 6.

“As names of the victims have been released by the media, we learned that a member of the party did have a reservation at the brewery for Saturday at noon,” the Brewery said in a statement on its Facebook page.

“Our thoughts are with the families and friends of the victims and all those affected by this terrible tragedy,” the statement added.

According to Ommegang, this information has been shared with the state police.

The New York Times reported a few minutes ago that the limo, from Prestige Limousines, wasn’t properly licensed and had failed a state safety inspection last month.

Also, Fox News is reporting the limo’s owner was an FBI informant.
