7 Motorcyclists Killed In Randolph, NH Crash Identified

RANDOLPH, N.H. (CBS) – New Hampshire Deputy Attorney General Jane Young identified the seven motorcyclists who died Friday night after they were struck by a pickup truck towing a flatbed trailer.

The crash happened Friday around 6:30 p.m. when the truck and trailer collided with the group of 10 motorcycles on Route 2.

During a Sunday press conference authorities identified the victims, who were members of Marine JarHeads MC, a motorcycle club that includes Marines and their spouses.

Joanne and Edward Corr, both 58 of Lakeville, died in the crash. Michael Ferazzi, 62, of Contoocook, N.H., Albert Mazza, 59, of Lee, N.H., Daniel Pereira, 58, of Riverside R.I., Desma Oakes, 42, of Concord, N.H., and Aaron Perry, 45, of Farmington, N.H. also died.

Each victim died of blunt trauma as a result of the crash, Young said.

"I don't think the word devastation can begin to describe the pain they're in," Young said of the victims' families.

Joshua Morin 45 of Dalton, Mass. remains in stable condition at Maine Medical Center. Steven Lewis, 58, of Brimfield, Mass. was treated and released.

Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, an employee of Westfield Transport, a company in Springfield, Massachusetts, has been identified as the driver of the pickup truck. The National Transportation Safety Board and police are investigating the crash.

Young said there is no update on the investigation and if Zhukovskyy will be charged.

"All I can tell you is it's active and ongoing. There are dozens of agents and officers up in the area working every aspect of this case," she said.

An online fundraising page has raised several hundred thousand dollars to pay for funeral expenses and medical bills. A memorial motorcycle ride from West Barnstable raised more than $13,000.

Also on Sunday, veterans visited the scene of the crash to pay their respects.

"Just a horrific scene and just a horrific thought. All these families that are involved -- you know, all these people that came up here for a good time this weekend, my gosh, what are they going through," said Bill Brown.

At one point, the Corrs lived in Bridgewater. Their former neighbor remembered them for their patriotism.

"Their house and their yard was beautiful. I was impressed because of the flags that they were flying. One was an American flag and one I believe was Marines," said neighbor Claudia Neault.
