Driver charged in crash that killed seven motorcyclists

Posted: Updated:

 The driver of a truck in a crash that killed seven motorcyclists has been charged with seven counts of negligent homicide.

   The New Hampshire attorney general's office says 23-year-old Volodymyr Zhukovskyy was arrested Monday morning at his home in West Springfield, Massachusetts.

   He is expected to make a court appearance Monday afternoon in Springfield.

   A man who answered the phone at the home of Zhukovskyy's family and would identify himself only as his brother-in-law says the family is in shock and feeling the same pain as everyone else but couldn't say whether the driver was right or wrong.

   Investigators say Zhukovskyy's pickup truck towing a flatbed trailer collided with a group of 10 motorcycles Friday on a two-lane highway in northern New Hampshire.
