Limousine crash leaves 20 dead in New York

More than 1,000 people gathered in a New York park to pay tribute to 20 people killed when a stretch limousine crashed while travelling to a birthday party. Devastated relatives and friends of the victims shed tears as a woman sang Amazing Grace during a vigil in the city of Amsterdam.

The limo, carrying a group of friends and family, charged through a highway intersection without stopping in the town of Schoharie in upstate New York on Oct. 6th. They were heading to a brewery when the vehicle crashed at the bottom of a long hill, smashing into a parked car. (AP)
