New info revealed in deadly North Fork limo crash as 5th anniversary nears
A road in Smithtown was renamed in honor of the four women killed in a tragic limo crash on the East End as new information into the case has been revealed.
The families gathered at Smithtown High School West, where some of them graduated, to attend the renaming ceremony of the road heading to the school.
The families tied a ribbon to the street sign during the ceremony, and spoke about the mystery that still surrounds their deaths.
On Thursday, News 12 saw an ambulance report that says there was a front-seat passenger in Steven Romeo's pickup truck when it T-boned the limousine that was carrying those eight women. The report says she refused medical care at the scene.
Lawyers for the victims' families say they've been trying to interview that woman, but she has been uncooperative so far.
They also showed an email to town officials that was written years before the crash, pointing out the danger of the intersection where it happened.
The limousine was struck while attempting to make U-turn on Sound Avenue.
Charges against the people involved in the crash were either dropped or seriously reduced, and the families say they still don't have any closure.
There is a pending lawsuit against Suffolk County and the Town of Southold.
