SCHOHARIE, N.Y. — The National Transportation Safety Board and Schoharie County District Attorney Susan Mallery have reached agreement on a plan that will give the federal agency access to the limousine involved in the crash that killed 20 people on Oct. 6, U.S. Rep. Paul Tonko said Jan. 10.

The congressman says NTSB may bring back an investigator furloughed by the federal shutdown to investigate the wrecked limo.
