    Just from the pictures and where all the bikes are, it looks like the truck crossed over and took them all out.

    It looks like the truck was pulling a long, gooseneck trailer.

    Helmet laws mean nothing when you're taken out by a truck... just sayin'.

    My dad completely freaked when he heard this on the national news in AZ, because I was supposed to be in NH riding with a group of friends.
    He called and left several messages. I forgot to tell him the trip had been postponed.
    Obviously, the chances of it being me and my friends would have been pretty far fetched (just because we were supposed to be in NH), but as a parent, you always worry.

    Sad, sad day in motorcycling history...

    Well stated Brian... this is so unbelievable! It doesn't evening seem possible for something like this could happen, like something from a move.

    Prayers are for all who were involved and their families!

    A pickup truck in rural New Hampshire struck and killed seven people and injured three on motorcycles Friday night. The crash ignited a small fire in a nearby wooded area and left a wreckage of damaged vehicles and the bodies of victims strewn across the highway.

    State police said a Dodge pickup truck with an attached flatbed trailer large enough to haul a car was traveling westbound when it plowed into the motorcycles, which were moving eastbound, around 6:30 p.m. Friday, along U.S. 2 in Randolph.

    Authorities are still investigating what caused the deadly collision. Some witnesses reported seeing the truck swerving just before it struck the bikers.
    The names of the victims have not been released, but police identified the driver as Volodoymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, of West Springfield, Mass., who survived and has not been charged. A number could not be found for Zhukovskyy in public records.
    Police said three other motorcyclists were injured, one of whom was airlifted to a local hospital after the crash.

    They just arrested the 23 year old truck driver and have charged him with 7 counts of negligent homicide. I don't know what information led to the warrant and subsequent arrest.

    Good. Sounds like he was in the wrong lane or something from what I read. Then it also said that nobody could get a hold of him I guess they found him

    Re: Seven motorcyclists dead

    Another piece of the puzzle;

    https://time.com/5613549/driver-7-ho...new-hampshire/

    ........JarHeads president Manny Ribeiro, who survived the crash, said the group had just finished dinner and was heading to a fundraiser at American Legion post in nearby Gorham. A total of 21 riders and 15 motorcycles were in the group. Ten motorcycles, including Mazza, who was riding next to Ribeiro, were hit.

    “It was just an explosion … with parts and Al and everything flying through the air,” he said. “He turned hard left into us and took out pretty much everyone behind me. The truck and trailer stayed attached and that is why it was so devastating … because the trailer was attached and it was such a big trailer, it was like a whip. It just cleaned us out.”

    After the crash, Ribeiro recalled seeing Zhukovskyy “screaming and running around” in the middle of the road before he was taken away by authorities. Motorcycles and bodies were everywhere, he said, and several people were yelling at Zhukovskyy, demanding to know what he had just done.
    You'll never know how fast you can go, until you go too fast.

    Legally here but not a citizen, crashed car while drunk at 16 with no license, drunk driving charge less than a month ago, drug convictions, other crimes a few years back, has a CDL and was hired a few days ago to drive. What? When they went to his apartment they found hard drugs which means he didn't even care to clean them up. Guy came here and scoffed at our laws, was free to get away with his behavior and was then allowed to drive for work with a drunk driving charge outstanding. Many of our systems failed these seven American citizen riders. It is no surprise anymore.
