That's horrible. I read somewhere that one of the passengers, I think, had called in about the condition of the limo 20 mins before it happened.

I don't understand how a limo crash that didn't involve a plunge off a height could be so bad that everyone died. They drove through an intersection, hit a parked SUV and all 20 people died? It is a stunning tragedy.

Probably a party limo without sear belts. Acted like a crash tunnel.

It was a converted limo that failed safety inspection and wasn't supposed to be on the road. Driver didn't have a CDL either.

What a tragedy for their family. I can't think about it, I literally start tearing up.
