Four New Hampshire residents are among the seven who were killed Friday night when a pickup truck crashed into a group of motorcycles.

On Sunday, officials released the names of the victims of the accident in Randolph.

Michael Ferazzi of Contoocook, Albert Mazza of Lee, Desma Oakes of Concord, and Aaron Perry of Farmington died. A Rhode Island man and a couple from Massachusetts were also killed. Three other riders were injured.

The New Hampshire Attorney General's Office says all of the victims died of blunt force trauma. Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the crash. The driver of the pickup, 23-year-old Volodoymyr Zhukovskyy of West Springfield, Mass., did survive.

A man who identified himself as Zhukovskyy's father says his son is cooperating with an investigation into the tragedy.

Investigators say Zhukovskyy is an employee of a Springfield, Massachusetts-area transportation company.

A reporter reached a man by phone Sunday at a listing for Zhukovskyy.

The man who answered identified himself as Zhukovskyy's father and said his son is cooperating with authorities back in Massachusetts. The man declined to comment further.

Gov. Chris Sununu has directed flags to fly at half-staff until sunset Monday evening in honor of the crash victims.
