FOND DU LAC - A Fond du Lac County judge Wednesday ruled key evidence can be used during a trial concerning a deadly motorcycle crash.
Authorities say last May Clinton Lovelace drove his car across the centerline on Highway 151.
He hit several members of a motorcycle club from Michigan.
Two of them died.
Judge Gary Sharpe said clothes, a cell phone and syringes examined by a sheriff's deputy at the hospital were properly handled and can be used during Lovelace's trial.
Lovelace's attorney argued the evidence shouldn't be allowed because it could possibly have been tampered with.
The items were collected from Lovelace at the scene of the crash and sent with him by ambulance to the hospital.
Lovelace's cell phone kept ringing and hospital staff asked the deputy to turn it off.
When the deputy turned off the phone, he found Lovelace's ID and several syringes.
Judge Sharpe said the deputy acted appropriately.
The courtroom was packed with motorcycle riders. Some were members of the Muskegon Motorcycle Gang who were involved in the crash.
One of them, Brad Groom, was involved in the crash and says the judge's decision is a relief.
"I feel relieved that I feel the judge correctly decided the issue before him and hopefully this will move the process one step closer to a resolution, that's what the victims need."
Lovelace's attorney was unavailable for comment after court.
No trial date has been set for the case.
