A new memorial in Randolph, New Hampshire, honors the seven motorcyclists killed in a crash there over the summer.

The monument is at the Mount Jefferson View Motel. Saturday's ceremony sparked memories, tears and a sense of gratitude for those grieving the fatal crash. Materials and labor to build the monument were donated, and any money raised goes to the victims' families. It weighs more than 4,000 lbs. and represents the five motorcycles involved in the crash and the names of those who died.

"It certainly is fitting. They're traveling in the right direction, in order of seniority and it's just fitting, it really is just perfect," Jarheads Motorcycle Club President Manny Ribeiro said.

The suspect in the case, Volodymyr Zhukovskyy has a court hearing scheduled for Monday.
