A limousine that crashed and killed 20 people had failed an inspection and should not have been on the road.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo told a news conference that the driver did not have the appropriate licence to drive the modified limo.
Two newlywed couples and four sisters ‑ ranging in age from 30 to 35 are among the 20 people who died in Sunday's collision in New York state.
Officials say the crash is the worst US road tragedy in nearly a decade.
Cuomo told reporters that officials did not yet know the cause of the accident ‑ whether it was an issue with the vehicle or a driver error.
The governor said New York would request a cease‑and‑desist order from the courts to prevent the company, Prestige Limo, from operating until the investigation is completed.
