DANDRIDGE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- In October members from the Front Street Baptist Church were on their way home to North Carolina from revival in Gatlinburg. A tire on their bus blew out causing a deadly crash on Interstate 40, but Friday survivors put together a lunch to say "thank you" for all their hard work.
Sandy and Marvin Boyer both survived the crash but only Sandy remembers that day.
"I cried out for someone to please put out the fire and all of a sudden I heard the sirens and the fire fighters coming to save the day." said Sandy
But the fire fighters weren't the only one who helped; dozens of EMS teams from counties all over East Tennessee answered the call including Jefferson County.
Sandy said "Today is a day for closure being able to put a face to the actions of these brave people who where there when we needed them the most."
There was also a special tribute to the bus driver, Randy Moss, who died in the crash; the spaghetti served at the lunch was his famous recipe.
