A man accused of causing a crash that killed seven motorcyclists in New Hampshire has been indicted on 23 charges saying he negligently caused the deaths and was under the influence of one or more drugs at the time.

Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, of Springfield, Massachusetts, is to be arraigned by video on Nov. 5. The 23-year-old has been jailed without bail since the June 21 crash in Randolph.

A Coos County grand jury handed up indictments Thursday on seven counts of negligent homicide; seven counts of negligent homicide - driving under the influence; seven counts of manslaughter-reckless; one count of driving while intoxicated; and one count of reckless conduct. If convicted of all charges, he could face up to 378 years in prison. He's previously pleaded not guilty.

A message was left with Zhukovskyy's lawyer on Monday.
