Investigators identified the driver of the pickup truck as 23-year-old Volodymyr Zhukovskyy of West Springfield. He was not seriously hurt. He was an employee of Westfield Transportation in Springfield. The company has not commented on the crash.

An Associated Press reporter reached a man by phone Sunday at a listing for Zhukovskyy. The man who answered identified himself as Zhukovskyy’s father. He said his son is cooperating with authorities but declined to comment further.

The National Transportation Safety Board said Zhukovskyy was interviewed at the scene by police and allowed to return to Massachusetts.

There have been no charges at this point in the investigation.

Authorities asked for the public’s help in the form of videos, photos or other information about the accident or the vehicles.
