FOND DU LAC - Friday marks one year since two members of a Michigan motorcycle club were killed and eight other riders were injured in Fond du Lac County.
Clinton Lovelace, 26, allegedly plowed into the group. Authorities claim Lovelace's car crossed the center line on Highway 151 east of Fond du Lac.
Thursday night, survivors and first responders came together in Fond du Lac. They shared stories and remembered the lives that were lost.
Survivors of the crash gather to honor first responders. Without the first responders' efforts, survivors say some of them might not be here.
"How do you say 'these people saved my friend from death?' How do you thank them? I cannot give them enough money or thank them verbally enough," said Brad Groom, a crash survivor and member of the Muskegon Motorcycle Gang.
The scene last May was one those first responders say they won't forget.
"This was taking bad exponentially. This, I have been telling others is like a a bomb went off on the highway, the amount of damage that was done," said ThedaStar Flight Nurse Jeff Grimm.
Many of them are now meeting for the first time.
"I was very much looking forward to this with a lot of trepidation and a lot of feelings of how, what do you say to these people that saved my friend?" asked Groom.
"It's a great feeling to see this. We see so many bad things, but to see something like this makes it all worthwhile. To see someone go through such a bad experience in their life and to come back with such positive outcomes," said Grimm.
Now sharing a common bond.
"They have been very grateful for all that our community has done for them and keeping them in our thoughts and prayers and just rallying behind them and giving them strength is what we have done and what's fostered from that is a friendship," said Open Road Harley-Davidson co-owner Lori Thiel.
"They opened their hearts to us and the community of Wisconsin opened their hearts to us at a time when we were at the lowest, you could imagine, being emotionally. And that kind of support just means the world to us," said Groom.
Once a group associated through a love of motorcycles, now sharing a bond much stronger.
