Suspect Arrested in Crash That Claimed Lives of Lakeville Couple
WEST SPRINGFIELD— The driver of the truck involved in Friday's accident that killed seven motorcyclists in Randolph, New Hampshire, including a Lakeville couple, has now been charged.
Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, was arrested in his home in West Springfield Monday morning by Massachusetts State Police. Zhukovskyy was taken into custody on a fugitive from justice charge. The charge is based on an arrest warrant charging Zhukovskyy with seven counts of negligent homicide.
The arrest warrant stemmed from an incident that occurred Friday evening in New Hampshire when a truck collided with a group of motorcyclists on a rural highway. Freetown residents Joanne and Edward Corr, both 58 years old, were among the seven victims Friday night.
The victims were part of a motorcycle club for Marines, and the State Attorney General's Office says all of the victims died from blunt force trauma. New Hampshire State Police said Friday's accident happened when a pickup truck pulling a trailer collided with the riders on U.S. 2, A two-lane highway in Randolph, New Hampshire.
