Lansing, N.Y. — One teenager was killed and two other young men have been hospitalized with critical injuries after an “ATV vs. dirt bike” accident in Tompkins County late Friday night, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.

Lynn Eastman III, 19, of Lansing, was taken to the hospital after the 11:17 p.m. crash on Decamp Road.

Emergency officials responded to the crash and transported Eastman to Cayuga Medical Center. He was pronounced dead at 12:13 a.m.

Two others — Billy Radcliffe, 21; and Zachary Radcliffe, 19 — were taken to Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, according to the sheriff’s office.

A nursing supervisor in Syracuse confirmed late Saturday night that Billy and Zachary Radcliffe remain in critical condition.

No charges are pending. A press release did not explain how the accident occurred, solely describing it as an “ATV vs. dirt bike accident.”

In an interview Saturday evening, Lynn Eastman Jr. said his son would be sorely missed.

“He was my best friend. We were together 24 hours a day,” Lynn Eastman Jr. said.
