The family of Scott Lisinicchia, the 53-year-old driver in the tragic limousine crash that left him and 19 others dead last Saturday, has spoken out in Lisinicchia’s defense, arguing that he could not have known about the limo’s serious mechanical problems because he “never would have knowingly put others in harm’s way.” The lawyer representing Lisinicchia’s family said Tuesday that “The family believes that unbeknownst to him he was provided with a vehicle that was neither roadworthy nor safe for any of its occupants.” “The Lisinicchia family is devastated by the horrific tragedy that occurred in Schoharie and their prayers go out to all the families that lost loved ones. They are mourning their husband, father and brother and they are also grieving for the other innocent souls who lost their lives,” their lawyer added. Although Lisinicchia did have a commercial driver’s license, he did not carry the proper license required to drive more than 15 adult passengers. After barreling through a T-junction Saturday afternoon and colliding with an unoccupied SUV in a country store parking lot, Lisinicchia, the 17 limo passengers, and two bystanders were killed in the worst transportation accident in almost a decade.
