The head of the Massachusetts RMV has resigned in the wake of a crash that killed seven bikers in New Hampshire.
According to MassDOT, Zhukovskyy's 2013 OUI charge would not have disqualified him from receiving the commercial license under state and federal law. The RMV failed to act on information when that incident occurred.
A MassDOT review found that Connecticut failed to provide information through the federal CDL system after the May incident to automatically apply to his Massachusetts driving record.
The Baker Administration sent a statement saying: “Governor Baker and Lieutenant Governor Polito are deeply saddened by this horrific tragedy and ordered an immediate review of the Registry’s processes for handling state to state information sharing.”
