The National Transportation Safety Board has yet to disclose the name of the limo company.

Radar told you first, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo told reporters Monday morning that the man driving the limo did not have an appropriate license to be operating it and the car itself failed an inspection last month, making it unfit to be on the road.

Radar readers know that the limo was carrying wedding celebrants when it collided with another vehicle Saturday afternoon, leaving 20 dead.

Robert Sumwalt, Chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board said Saturday's crash was "one of the biggest losses of life we've seen in a long, long time."
