Prosecution rests in deadly motorcycle crash trial

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) The prosecution has rested in the case of a truck driver accused of killing seven motorcyclists in New Hampshire. Twenty-six-year-old Volodymyr Zhukovskyy faces negligent homicide and other charges in connection with the June 2019 crash in Randolph, New Hampshire. Prosecutors say the truck driver took multiple illegal drugs that day and repeatedly swerved back and forth before the head-on crash. His attorney blames the lead biker, whose blood alcohol level was well above the legal limit. The final witness for the prosecution Wednesday was a crash survivor who acknowledged the unsafe blood alcohol level but said the group leader did not swerve into the truck.  Zhukovskyy had an OUI arrest out of Connecticut at the time of the crash. The arrest should have triggered a suspension of his license, but the out-of-state violation was never processed by MassDOT.
