"The last thing I felt was my husband's hands go around me, and the next thing I know we're on the ground. I thought he was dead," said Amber.

The two weren't wearing helmets.

Amber has four broken ribs, road rash, a fractured thumb and swelling in her face.

Dion has more serious injuries, including bleeding in his brain.

"He's got a little boy to raise. A whole life to live. It's not fair that because someone made a bad choice that he's fighting for his life," said Amber.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help with medical expenses.

The driver who hit them has been identified as 31-year-old Michael Richardson.
