Victim of 2019 NH motorcycle crash sues Mass. state officials

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) – A Massachusetts man severely injured in a 2019 crash in New Hampshire that killed seven members of his motorcycle club has filed a lawsuit against the Massachusetts Registrar of Motor Vehicles for allegedly failing to suspend the driver’s license of the man charged in connection with the crash.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that Joshua Morin, of Dalton, alleges in his lawsuit filed last week that the agency acted willfully, wantonly or recklessly when it failed to process thousands of license suspensions and revocations reported from out-of-state.

That failure allowed Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, whose license had been suspended in Connecticut, to continue driving.

Zhukovskyy has pleaded not guilty.

2021 motorcycle fatalities highest in state since 1980

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – Officials say 2021 was the deadliest year for motorcycle accidents in the Palmetto State in the past four decades.

“It’s just awful,” attorney David Aylor said. “It’s awful for the friends and family and everybody that has to be affected by it.”

154 motorcyclists died on the roads in 2021, a statistic Aylor says may be due to distracted driving.

“Unfortunately, with modern-day technology,” Aylor said. “Obviously our cell phones, and in vehicles in-and-of themselves, the computer systems and everything that is available to look at while you’re driving, there’s just a lot of distracted driving.”

Aylor, who rides motorcycles says, it’s important to pay attention when driving on the roadways.

“The biggest thing is just making sure that you’re watching 360 degrees of what your surroundings are,” he said.

State law only requires motorcyclists under the age of 21 to wear a helmet, but
