  • Owner of limousine that crashed killing 20 was FBI informant who testified in terrorism trials

Shahed Hussain, a 62-year-old Pakistan native, has been identified as the owner of the Prestige Limousine company that operated the limo that crashed and killed 20 people in ny on Saturday, October 6.

According to authorities, the 2001 Ford Excursion limo that was being driven by 53-year-old Scott Lisinicchia was traveling southwest on State Route 30 when it sped through an intersection with State Route 30 A and collided with an SUV in a parking lot.

"We have located the owner of the company", said Maj. Other company executives have pledged to cooperate with the investigation.

His limo company, Prestige Limousine, said Monday it is investigating what caused Saturday's crash and has met with state and federal authorities. The limo company was registered at that address.

The limo company said in a statement that it "extends its deepest condolences to the family members and friends of those who tragically lost their lives on Saturday", CNN reported.

Albany-based lawyer Dana Salazar, who represented Mr Hussain in an unrelated civil case, confirmed to the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle on Monday that her client was the informant.

Hussain emigrated from Pakistan in the early 1990s, fleeing a murder charge that he later said was trumped up, according to news reports.

Hussain pleaded guilty to a felony in relation to the DMV scam but avoided prison and deportation by becoming an informant, working in New York's Muslim communities to find people who had radical tendencies.

His undercover work led to the 2006 conviction of two men in Albany who were accused of expressing interest in buying a shoulder-fired missile.

Washington Supreme Court tosses out state’s death penalty

In one case, he helped convict men accused of plotting to bomb NY synagogues.

AP said the Federal Bureau of Investigation declined to comment on Hussain on October 8.

HBO aired a documentary on the case, "The Newburgh Sting", in 2014.

The four men were impoverished and had no links to global terrorist organizations. "He puts on a superior performance over a long period of time and lies with breathtaking ease and quickness".

Hussain also ended up in bankruptcy court twice and was at sued at one point for taking reservations when no rooms were available at a hotel he owned in upstate NY. Among the victims were four sisters and three of their husbands.

"In my opinion, the owner of this company had no business putting a failed vehicle on the road", Cuomo said.

It has also been revealed that the vehicle involved in the crash failed a safety inspection in September and that the driver was not properly licensed. He also worked as a translator for the state Department of Motor Vehicles, and had routinely accepted bribes of several hundred dollars each to help immigrants, who in some cases couldn't drive well or pass written exams they couldn't understand, according to court records.

The accident was the deadliest transportation accident in the United States in nine years.

Hussain could not be reached for comment Monday.
