The defense team will resume laying out its case Monday in the trial of a man accused of causing a 2019 crash that killed seven motorcyclists.

The defense argues it was the lead motorcycle driver who caused the crash, saying they crossed the center line and not Zhukovskyy.

On Friday, defense lawyers called Trooper Daniel Quartulli, who was responsible for mapping out the crash scene. He was asked to describe his markings and conclusions.
