We now know who died in Friday's deadly crash in northern New Hampshire.

State leaders in New Hampshire released the names and photos of the seven people killed after a pickup truck hauling a flatbed trailer collided with the group of motorcyclists Friday evening.

Aaron Perry, 45, Desma Oakes, 42, Joanne and Edward Corr, both 58, Albert Mazza, 59, Michael Ferazzi, 62, and Daniel Pereira, 58, were killed.

"I don't think any of us can understand how these families are doing, I don't think that the word devastation can begin to describe the pain and the anguish," N.H. Assistant Attorney General Jane Young said.

The victims were all members of the New England Jarheads Motorcycle Club. The men were all Marines.

"Each of the victims died of blunt trauma," Young said.

Police say the motorcyclists were traveling on Route 2 in Randolph, New Hampshire, when the crash happened.

"Police, local and federal authorities have been at the scene since the time of the accident Friday evening," says Young.

They were remembered Sunday morning in Columbia. The Manchester Motorcycle Club held its Blessing of the Bikes, drawing hundreds of riders. They took time out of the event to dedicate a prayer to those killed in Friday's crash.

Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board continued processing the scene on Sunday.

Police say the driver of the truck, Volodoymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, of West Springfield, Massachusetts, is not facing any charges at this time.

The investigation is ongoing.
