Funeral of Crash Victims Tomorrow
PULASKI - Funeral services for three young men of this community killed early Monday morning, when the car they were passengers in plunged over an embankment and into a creek, will be conducted tomorrow.
Services for Richard John Long, 17, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Long of Richland, will be at 8:30 from the family home and at 9 a.m. from St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church. Monsignor G. R. Phelen of Binghamton, an uncle of the boy's father, will celebrate a solemn High Mass, assisted by the Rev. William Shanahan, pastor, and the Rev. William Bruce, assistant pastor. Burial will be Immaculate Conception Cemetery, Pompey. Friends may call at the home today.
Richard was born in Binghamton on June 3, 1938. He lived with his parents in Philadelphia for a time before coming to Sandy Creek, where he attended school until entering high school, when he came to Pulaski Central School. He was active in school athletics.
Surviving are his parents; two sisters Anne and Kathleen; a brother, John Jr.; his paternal grandmother, Mrs. Richard Long of Pompey.
A double funeral service will be held at the Methodist church at 2 p.m. tomorrow for Dennis James Ingersoll, 16, son of Mr. and Mrs. Everett Ingersoll, and Lawrence Archer, 19, son of Mrs. Edith Archer and the late Roy Archer. The Rev. James Pauley will officiate and the burial will be in Pulaski Cemetery. Friends may call at the funeral home today from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m.
Dennis was born Oct. 17, 1938 at Pulaski, son of Everett and Anne Holmes Ingersoll. He was a junior at Pulaski Central School this year, and was active in music affairs and athletics. Surviving him besides his parents, is a sister, Sue and his paternal grandmother, Mrs. Clayton Ingersoll.
Lawrence was born in Lowville Feb. 25, 1936, son of Roy and Edith Denslow Archer. He was a junior the past year at the Pulaski Central School. He is survived by his mother, a sister, Mrs. Leonard Totten, two brothers, Gerald and Harold, all of Pulaski.
The boys were passengers in a car operated by Frank Ostrander, 17, who is in critical condition in Oswego Hospital. They had gone to a beach party to be held by the senior class, which was called off because of bad weather, and were on their way to return two other passengers, Fred Hall and Harlow Dunton to their homes in and beyond Fernwood.
The accident occurred on County Highway 28 near Daysville. The car failed to negotiate a sharp turn over the bridge and went over an embankment and landed on its top in Grindstone Creek.
Hall who was the least seriously injured got out of his car and made his way to the nearby residence of Elmer Roberts, who had a phone to seek help. State police were notified, and Dr. Hugh McChesney was called. Lewis Dewey also responded with the Ringgold Fire Company resuscitator, and was assisted by John DelVecchio who worked on two of the boys in vain effort to revive them.
The injured boys Frank Ostrander, Harlow Dunton, and Fred Hall were taken to Oswego Hospital in the Taylor ambulance. Ostrander is suffering from a fractured skull, spine injury, possibly a broken back, and chest injuries. Dunton and Hall are not seriously injured but are suffering from shock, bruises and cuts.
