ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- The parents of one of the 20 people killed in last month's limousine crash in the Capital Region are suing the operators of the vehicle.

Twenty-nine-year-old Amanda Rivenburg was among 18 people in the limousine that crashed in rural Schoharie on Oct. 6. Two pedestrians also were killed.

Her parents filed a lawsuit Monday in state court seeking unspecified damages from the limousine service operators.

The lawsuit names Prestige Limousine owner Shahed Hussain and his son Nauman Hussain, who has pleaded not guilty to a charge of criminally negligent homicide.
