ALBANY, N.Y. (WWNY) - There was a pretrial hearing Monday connected to the deadly Schoharie, N.Y. limousine crash that killed 20 people last year.

The hearing is in the criminal case against Nauman Hussein, who operates the company that owned the limo.

Hussein’s lawyer is trying to suppress statements Hussein made to investigators.

The October 6, 2018 crash has been labeled as the nation's deadliest transportation accident since 2009 and it sparked a call for new limo safety regulations.

Among those killed were a Watertown couple, Robert and Mary Dyson.
