GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A good Samaritan who found $8,000 on the side of the road has returned it to a woman whose husband died in a stretch limousine crash in upstate New York.

Brubaker stopped to collect it, and then turned it in at the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office just as Kim Steenburg was filing a report about the missing money.
Steenburg says she accidentally left the money in an envelope on top of her car. She says part of the money was for a honeymoon cruise she had originally planned with her late husband.
Steenburg’s husband, Rich, was one of 20 who died in the Oct. 6 crash in Schoharie County.
Prosecutors have charged the operator of the limo company with criminally negligent homicide, alleging he allowed an improperly licensed driver to operate a vehicle deemed unserviceable by state inspectors.READ MORE: Gov.

The Schoharie wreck happened a little more than three years after four young women were killed in a limo crash on Long Island.
The victims were leaving a North Fork vineyard in July 2015 when their driver made what was then a legal but dangerous U-turn into the path of a pickup truck.
Four other women and the limo driver were hospitalized.MORE NEWS: Must-See Video: NYPD Officer Rescues Driver From Burning Car In Bronx
