NH prosecutors want another look at Zhukovskyy’s truck in biker-crash case

New Hampshire wants another look at the truck authorities say Volodymyr Zhukovskyy crashed into a squad of bikers, killing seven.

Coos County, N.H., prosecutors filed a motion in the Granite State courts on Wednesday seeking permission for consultant Crash Labs, Inc., to “conduct a further examination” of the Dodge Ram pickup the 23-year-old Zhukovskyy is accused of driving under the influence when he crashed into the Jarheads Motorcycle Club members, killing the veterans and their loved ones.

The prosecutors didn’t elaborate much further on what they and the consultants hope to get from this, other than to say that they Crash Labs could “conduct testing or take additional measurements of the truck” and then “return the vehicle to its previous post-crash state.”

Witnesses: Truck crossed road twice before it hit motorcyclists

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Witness accounts of a June crash that killed seven motorcyclists in New Hampshire say the driver of a truck veered into the opposite lane of traffic at least twice before colliding with the oncoming bikers, according to a court document released Tuesday.

Volodymyr Zhukovskyy was driving erratically on westbound Route 2 on June 21, the witnesses told police. A man driving behind him said he remembered “dust being kicked up” when the truck and attached trailer went over the shoulder before the driver corrected the action. A short time later, the truck and trailer crossed over the yellow line twice and eventually “plowed” into the eastbound motorcyclists in Randolph, the man and other drivers said.

Zhukovskyy, 23, of West Springfield, Massachusetts, has pleaded not guilty to negligent homicide in the crash.

The seven who died were members of the Jarheads Motorcycle Club, a New England group that includes Marines and their spouses.
