Posted on March 16, 2016

Chauffeur Carlos Pino was also charged with reckless driving and other crimes in connection with the crash on July 18 in Cutchogue, NY, that killed Brittney Schulman, Lauren Baruch, Stephanie Belli and Amy Grabina, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota.

The four women were touring vineyards in a limousine to celebrate a friend's birthday when Pino tried to make a U-Turn and was hit by a truck driven by Steven Romeo. Four other women, including a bride-to-be, and both drivers were hurt in the crash.

Romeo was arrested on drunken driving charges after the fatal crash. He was also indicted on DWI charges, but a grand jury declined to charge him with manslaughter or criminally negligent homicide, authorities said.
