The 23-year-old pickup truck driver with a history of traffic arrests, which are blamed for killing seven motorcyclists in a fatal crash in New Hampshire last summer, has been indicted on 23 charges and could face up to 378 years in prison if convicted.

Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, a Ukrainian native living in Boston, Mass., that turned out to be under the control of one or more of the drugs at the time, was indicted by a video on Aug. 5, The Associated Press reported.

He has been jailed without bail since June 21 crash in Randolph, about 100 miles north of Concord.

Earlier, he had pleaded not guilty.

Back in June, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) filed a detainer against Zhukovskyy, looking at the potential to deport him to after the procedure.
