Driver in Fatal Crash Denies Previous Drunken Driving Charge
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A lawyer for the driver of a pickup truck in a crash that killed seven motorcyclists in New Hampshire says his client denies being intoxicated when he was charged with drunken driving in Connecticut last month.
Volodymyr Zhukovskyy was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs on May 11 in a Walmart parking lot in East Windsor, Connecticut.
His lawyer in that case, John O'Brien, said Monday that Zhukovskyy denies the allegations.
Prosecutors say officers responded to a complaint about a man who was revving his truck engine and jumping up and down outside the vehicle. They say Zhukovskyy failed a sobriety test at the scene.
Zhukovskyy is set to be arraigned Tuesday in New Hampshire on negligent homicide charges connected to Friday's fatal crash.
