Zhukovskyy, of West Springfield, Massachusetts, has pleaded not guilty to negligent homicide. Officials say Zhukovskyy’s license should have been suspended because of a drunken driving arrest.

On Tuesday, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Maura Healey confirmed an investigation into Westfield Transportation, which operated the truck.
