In yet another bizarre twist to the unfolding fatal limousine crash investigation, the Ford Excursion stretch involved was put up for sale by its owners two days before the Oct. 6 accident, according to newspaper article and a source who contacted LCT with the actual sales listing.

Prestige Limousine tried to unload the customized 2001 Ford Excursion for $9,000 in an ad posted on Craigslist, the Albany Times Union said.

The company even indicated it would accept less for the ride, adding “obo” — which stands for “or best offer.”

The listing says the vehicle had 180,000 miles on its odometer but was in “excellent” condition and “Dot Ready.”
