Charges Dropped Against Chauffeur In N.Y. Crash

Posted on October 26, 2016

All charges have been dropped against the chauffeur in the July 2015 crash that killed four women who were touring vineyards on Long Island to celebrate a birthday, a judge said Oct. 26.

Carlos Pino was indicted in March on four counts of criminally negligent homicide, four counts of assault, reckless driving and other crimes in the Cutchogue crash that killed Brittney Schulman, Lauren Baruch, Stephanie Belli and Amy Grabina. All of them were in their early 20s.

The four women were touring vineyards in a limousine to celebrate a friend's birthday when Pino tried to make a U-turn on state Route 48 and was hit by a truck driven by an alleged drunk driver. Four other women, including a bride-to-be, and both drivers were hurt in the crash.
