UNDATED (AP) The pickup truck driver charged with causing the deaths of seven motorcyclists in New Hampshire told authorities he had a drug problem, regularly used heroin and cocaine but believed he was not impaired at the time of the crash.

The admission by Volodymyr Zhukovskyy was included in a trove of documents released Wednesday by federal investigators related to the June 21, 2019, crash in Randolph.

The National Transportation Safety Board also announced that it will hold a hearing on Dec. 1 where it will discuss probable cause, findings and any safety recommendations from its investigation.

Zhukovskyy pleaded not guilty to multiple counts of negligent homicide.
