The NTSB says “time's up” to the Schoharie County District Attorney, demanding access to the limousine that crashed in October, killing 20.

The request came in the form of a letter that charged the DA with preventing the NTSB team from doing their job.

"...we are gravely concerned that your lack of responsiveness to our requests has seriously impeded our abilities to carry out our congressionally-mandated duties to properly complete this safety investigation and potentially prevent similar accidents in the future," the NTSB's general counsel wrote in a Dec. 14 letter.
