Funerals arranged for three in crash

        ROSS TOWNSHIP — As investigators continued to probe the cause of Saturday's triple-fatal crash on U.S. 27, funeral arrangements were made for its victims.

        Meanwhile, a Fairfield man injured in the crash, Justin D. Oehler, 21, remained in critical condition Monday at University Hospital.

        Mr. Oehler's relatives sent an e-mail to The Cincinnati Enquirer, urging prayers for him and for another survivor, Christopher A. Serger, 20, of Anderson Township, who was treated for broken bones.

        The crash killed Anthony R. Bustle, 23, of Millville; Michael A. Dulli II, 20, of Ross Township; and James C. Haynes, 19, of Shandon in Morgan Township.

        Mr. Bustle and Mr. Serger were listed as students at Miami University.

        Mr. Bustle, who was slated for MU graduation in May, was a 1996 graduate of Ross High School; Mr. Dulli and Mr. Haynes also had attended the Ross Local Schools.

        The three who died were in a 1994 Honda Civic driven by Mr. Haynes; Mr. Oehler was extricated from it.

        None of the four occupants of the Honda was wearing a seat belt.

        Beer cans were found in and around Mr. Haynes' vehicle, so alcohol could be a factor in the crash, police said. They were awaiting the victims' blood test results.

        The Honda collided with a 1993 Infiniti driven by Mr. Serger, who was wearing a seat belt, which “minimized his injuries,” police said.

        • Service for Mr. Bustle: 1 p.m. Thursday, Paul R. Young Funeral Home, 3950 Pleasant Ave., Hamilton; visitation is 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the funeral home.

        Survivors include his parents, Gary and Linda Burton of Hamilton.

        Memorials can be made to the First Church of God Building Fund, 3100 Princeton Road, Hamilton, Ohio 45011.

        • Service for Mr. Dulli: 10 a.m. Friday, Charles C. Young Funeral Home, 4032 Hamilton-Cleves Road, Ross Township; visitation is 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the funeral home.

        Survivors include his parents, Michael A. and Paula Dulli of Ross Township.

        • Service for Mr. Haynes: 10 a.m. Thursday, Charles C. Young Funeral Home, 4032 Hamilton-Cleves Road, Ross Township; visitation is 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday.

        Survivors include his mother, Elizabeth Marie Haynes of Morgan Township, and his sister, Chasity Ann Haynes.

        Memorials can be made to the American Cancer Society, 11117 Kenwood Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45242.
