Insurer asks court to divide money after NH crash that killed 7
An insurer for a trucking company involved in a crash that killed seven motorcyclists is asking a judge to divide liability payments among victims and their families.
The Boston Globe reports that Pilgrim Insurance Co. filed suit in federal court Friday asking a judge to divide its $1 million policy for Westfield Transport.
Authorities say Volodoymyr Zhukovskyy was driving for Westfield in June when he collided with a group of 10 motorcycles in New Hampshire, killing seven. He has been charged in their deaths.
Pilgrim’s suit details 15 claims from victims and their families. The company says it’s unable to determine amounts to be paid and wants the court to decide.
It also asked a judge to relieve Pilgrim of its duty to provide legal defense to the trucking company.
