Twenty Three Year Old Arrested in Causing the Death of Seven Motorcyclists

June 27, 2019

SPRINGFIELD, MA – According to online news reports at and,  a twenty three year old Ukraine national with a United States green card is being arraigned this week where he is facing seven counts of negligent homicide in the recent motorcycle accident that occurred late last week in New Hampshire.*

Police arrested a twenty three year old man who caused the death of seven motorcyclists from a local motorcycle club known as the JarHeads MC, the members of whom are veterans of the Marine Corps and their spouses.  

Upon a background investigation, it was uncovered that the twenty three year old has a significant driving record, which includes a DUI conviction in 2013 and a recent arrest for failing a field sobriety test in a Walmart parking lot in East Windsor, Connecticut.

The man still has an active Massachusetts driver’s license.  As of earlier this week, his license was suspended due to being an “immediate threat” to the public.  The Massachusetts State Police arrested the man after fleeing from justice.  He was eventually turned over to New Hampshire authorities.

The police confiscated “wax packets containing a residue suspected of being heroin” when they took the twenty three year old man into custody.  The police indicate that the man may face additional charges if the substance tests positive for heroin. 

According to investigators, the twenty three year old man was operating a pickup truck that was towing a trailer when he crashed into ten motorcyclists.   Per the report, “[h]e was taken into custody on a fugitive from justice charge at his home in West Springfield, Massachusetts.”

In addition to the seven bikers who died, three were taken to area hospitals for treatment due to their injuries.  Two of the three individuals were released from the hospitals.
