Two motorcyclists were killed on Interstate 95 in Augusta during the 2017 United Bikers of Maine Toy Run.

A couple who said they suffered “serious” injuries in a crash during last year’s Toy Run motorcycle ride is suing the family of the man who allegedly caused the crash, according to the Sun Journal.

That man, 25-year-old Aaron White-Sevigny of Windsor, was one of two people killed in the crash.

Torri A. McGraw and Trevor T. Proctor of Lisbon filed the lawsuit in Androscoggin County Superior Court, claiming White-Sevigny cut off a pickup truck while merging into the passing lane on Interstate 95, causing a chain reaction that resulted in the crash of the motorcycle ridden by McGraw and Proctor, the newspaper reported.

The annual Toy Run attracts thousands of motorcycle riders, who travel in a caravan from Augusta to Windsor with toys donated to the less fortunate.

McGraw and Proctor also name the United Bikers of Maine, who organize the Toy Run, in their lawsuit, according to the Sun Journal. Police said McGraw and Proctor were transported to the hospital with abrasions caused from sliding on the road, the newspaper reported.

In addition to White-Sevigny, 58-year-old Jamie Gross of Belmont was also killed in the crash.
