After deadly N.H. biker crash, thousands of out-of-state traffic notices found untouched by Massachusetts RMV

BOSTON — Tens of thousands of paper notices detailing traffic infractions that Massachusetts drivers compiled in other states have been sitting untouched in 53 bins at a state facility in Quincy, a preliminary review by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation has found.

Among them: a May 11 report of a drunken-driving violation in Connecticut accumulated by Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, a truck driver from West Springfield, Massachusetts.

Connecticut notified the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles about Zhukovskyy's incident both electronically and through a mailed notice that would have got into one of the bins, the report released Monday says. Under state law, Zhukovskyy's commercial driver's license should have been immediately terminated and his right to drive a passenger vehicle suspended.

Man draws 111 years for attempted murders

GOSHEN — A Goshen man received a 111-year sentence Thursday after he was convicted of trying to kill three people when he opened fire on their truck in New Paris two years ago.

Michael Ortiz, 39, was found guilty of three counts of attempted murder following a jury trial in May. He claimed he was trying to protect a fellow member of his motorcycle club when he fired seven shots at a pickup truck with three occupants near the New Paris Speedway on June 17, 2017.

It was a claim that Circuit Court Judge Michael Christofeno rejected at Ortiz’s sentencing Thursday.

“The jury did not believe your ill-conceived story and the court does not believe it either,” he said. “Had you carried out your plan you would have hit (the driver). Did you ever think about the fact that if that happened, he would have driven right over your friends?”
