Lansing, N.Y. — More than $6,000 has been raised for the families of the three young men killed in a tragic accident in Lansing.

On Sept. 26, three men were hospitalized after a dirt bike collided with an ATV four-wheeler. They later died.

Those killed were Lynn Eastman III, 19; and brothers Billy Radcliffe, 21, and Zachary Radcliffe, 19.

Eastman III died at 19.

Two separate GoFundMe fundraising pages were launched after the deaths to help the families pay for funeral and other expenses.

One, for Eastman III, had raised $1,780 as of Tuesday. Thirty-five people had donated for Eastman’s funeral expenses, some anonymously and some with tributes to the young man, who worked as a welder and was an avid outdoorsman.

The second fundraiser, for the Radcliffe brothers, had raised $5,087 as of Tuesday.

“You weren’t just friends, you were family,” one donor said. “RIP boys, you will never be forgotten.”
