Volodymyr Zhukovskyy was returning from delivering vehicles for Westfield Transport and was towing an empty flatbed trailer at the time of the crash.
An NTSB investigation found the truck likely crossed over the double yellow line, striking the motorcycles.
Zhukovskyy, of West Springfield, pleaded not guilty to negligent homicide and driving under the influence. He remains in custody as he awaits trial later this year.
