Deadly N.H. motorcycle crash leads Mass. governor to push tougher driver\'s license regulations

BOSTON Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker filed legislation Friday to create new tougher standards to obtain and keep commercial driver's licenses in the commonwealth, a move inspired by last month's devastating crash in neighboring New Hampshire that killed seven motorcyclists.

Baker, a Republican, unveiled the legislation in a letter to members of the Massachusetts state legislature, saying the devastating crash "called attention" to the state's regulations for commercial driver's license.

Among the proposed regulations: Drivers who have been suspended or disqualified at any point over the past three years wouldn't be eligible to receive a commercial driver's license in Massachusetts.

Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, a truck driver from West Springfield, Massachusetts, was charged with seven counts of vehicular homicide after he struck a group of bikers on June 21 when he crossed a double-yellow line on a rural highway in Randolph, New Hampshire, with his truck and trailer. The bikers were members of Marine Jarheads MC, a motorcycle club that includes Marines and their spouses.
