The pickup truck driver blamed for causing a collision that killed seven motorcyclists could be deported back to Ukraine, according to Fox News.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Thursday filed a detainer request against Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, meaning he could face deportation whenever he is released from custody.
Investigators say Zhukovskyy was driving erratically in a Dodge pickup truck and trailer on Friday night on a two-lane road in the small town of Randolph, New Hampshire when he crossed the center line and collided with the bikers.
Zhukovskyy was arrested Monday morning at his home in Massachusetts and handed over to New Hampshire authorities after a court appearance that day.
Records show Zhukovskyy had been stopped twice on suspicion of drunken driving in the past seven years.
The Associated Press said the judge in the case cited Zhukovskyy's driving record when he decided to keep the suspect in custody, "saying it poses a potential danger to the public and himself."
Five of the victims were part of the Jarheads Motorcycle Club, a group made up of active-duty and veteran Marines. The other two were supporters of the club.
