Jarheads MC Club Accident: “When They Fall, We All Fall.”

 In Domestic, Veterans

The names of the people who perished in the Jarheads MC club accident have been identified:

Michael Ferazzi, 62 (Contoocook, NH)
Albert Mazza, 49 (Lee, NH)
Daniel Pereira, 58 (Riverside, RI)
Jo-Ann and Edward Corr, both 58 (Lakeville, MA. Read a tribute post to the Corrs here.)
Desma Oakes, 42 (Concord, NH)
Aaron Perry, 45 (Farmington, NH)

The five men were all members of the Jarheads MC Club, the two women were supporters. Of the three others injured in the crash, two have been released from the hospital, the other is in stable condition.

The NH State Police stated that the Dodge truck was towing a trailer that is used to transport cars when it struck the ten bikes. The driver of the truck, Volodoymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, survived the accident without needing hospitalization, but isn’t answering his phone. He has not been charged as of this writing. One question: how did Mr Zhukovskyy get out of the truck before it caught fire?

UPDATE Monday via Fox: “Volodoymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, is now facing seven counts of negligent homicide after being taken into custody this morning in West Springfield, the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office announced.”

The accident is still under investigation for cause.

“This is one of the worst tragic incidents that we have investigated here in the state. It’s going to be a lengthy investigation.” New Hampshire State Police Col. Chris Wagner

R.I.P., Marines and Supporters

Ed Corr said on his Facebook page that he went to the “University of Parris Island.” He enlisted in the USMC “straight out of high school” according to the note posted with his picture in a Marine Corps uniform.

Aaron Perry was in a relationship with Desma Oakes, according to Heavy.com. Mike Ferrazi posted this photo of a stone with the Marine Corps emblem that he said was given to him by a brother Marine.

Heavy didn’t have information on some of the others, but it is obvious that they all loved being Marines, and enjoyed riding with the Jarheads MC Club. the

Fox reported: Meanwhile, about 400 motorcyclists gathered in Columbia, N.H., about 50 miles north of the crash site, for a long-planned Blessing of the Bikes ceremony that became a memorial. The Rev. Rich Baillargeon, who presided over the ceremony, held a moment of silence and prayer for those who died in the crash.

“When they fall, we all fall,” said Laura Cardinal, Vice President of the Manchester Motorcycle Club. “Those families, they’re going to go through a lot now. They have a new world ahead of them.”

The GoFundMe set up by Jarheads MC Club member Doug Hayward for the families that were impacted reads:

On Friday, June 21st 2019 Jarheads MC was riding to a charity event at the local American Legion in Gorham, New Hampshire Post #82. Our pack was struck by an oncoming vehicle and we lost 5 patch holders and 2 supporters, and many others are injured. Our club and the families are going to need help and we cannot do it alone. I am pleading with you all, please do what you can, and 100% of the funds raised will go where it is needed to help ease some of the financial burden left behind after this tragic event. Jarheads MC has always been about helping veterans and their families. Please help us now and give what you can. Everything you can do is appreciated. We are strong enough to get through this, but we ask for and need your support.

Names and conditions of all will not be shared at this time as we are still being impacted by news as it arrives. We will be in New Hampshire the rest of the weekend supporting our friends and families.

    As a fellow disabled veteran and past biker, I offer my deepest sympathy, condolences, and prayers to the family and friends of those lost to this senseless criminal accident.
    Having a 30 plus year career as a paramedic and E.R. nurse I have unfortunately seen far too many of this type occurrence. Making it worse is the fact that many of these accidents are caused by repeat offenders, as is the case here. That, however is a conversation best suited for another time.
    There’s nothing that I could say or do to relieve the misery and suffering of the many affected by this accident. If there was, I would most certainly say or do it.
    Know that I will be praying for all. In the meantime, hold those near and dear to you closer and live to make those in heaven proud.

    **** Ride safely****
    I’m not trying to make light of the situation – news sources have reported that “biker bowling” is the term being used in some online correspondence . Apparently sick people were turning this into a challenge to rack up the most death tallies in a single hit. Please tell me this is not true. I’m going to be riding solo from now on and avoiding group rides in the near future. My condolences to the family members affected and the emergency workers providing their service at the scene.
