"I don't think the word devastation can begin to describe the pain they're in," Young said of the victims' families. Volodoymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, an employee of Westfield Transport, a company in Springfield, Massachusetts, has been identified as the driver of the pickup truck. The National Transportation Safety Board and police are investigating the crash.

Young said there is no update on the investigation and if Zhukovskyy will be charged.

"All I can tell you is it's active and ongoing. There are dozens of agents and officers up in the area working every aspect of this case," she said.

An online fundraising page has raised several hundred thousand dollars to pay for funeral expenses and medical bills.
