New Hampshire Truck Driver Involved in Fatal Motorcycle Accident

In a case that has reverberated through New Hampshire and beyond, the truck driver involved in the tragic 2019 crash that resulted in the deaths of seven motorcyclists will have his license reinstated in two years. This decision follows a recent judicial ruling regarding the license suspension of Volodymyr Zhukovskyy.

Zhukovskyy, who was at the center of a fatal motorcycle accident that claimed the lives of seven members of the Jarheads Motorcycle Club, has been handed a seven-year license suspension, starting from the time of the crash. This means he will be eligible to get his license back in 2026.

The accident, which occurred in 2019, took the lives of several Marine Corps veterans and their spouses, including Jo-Ann and Edward Corr from Lakeville. The devastating incident sparked widespread outrage and led to a high-profile court case.

Prosecutors in the case alleged that Zhukovskyy was under the influence of drugs and was swerving on the road just before the collision. However, Zhukovskyy was acquitted of manslaughter and reckless driving charges in 2022. His defense attorneys argued that the crash was caused by Albert “Woody” Mazza, the lead biker, who they claimed was intoxicated at the time.

During the license appeal hearing, the judge concluded that Zhukovskyy had indeed been driving recklessly at the time of the crash, which warranted the seven-year suspension of his driving privileges. This decision has been met with mixed reactions, as many continue to grapple with the aftermath of the tragic event.

In addition to the criminal proceedings, there is also the issue of compensation for the victims’ families. In cases like this, the types of compensation at stake can be substantial and multifaceted.

Victims and their families may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, loss of income, and pain and suffering. The emotional and financial toll on the families of the deceased cannot be overstated, and securing adequate compensation is a crucial part of the recovery process.
