The crash occurred at the intersection of Beechmont Avenue and Eight Mile Road in Anderson Township. Officials said three other vehicles were struck during the incident, and the SORTA Metro bus ultimately struck a utility pole. 

No other serious injuries were reported, officials said.

McMillan died Oct. 23. The Sheriff’s Office announced McMillan’s remains were moved from the coroner’s office to Spring Grove Cemetery on Monday.

Sheriff Jim Neil said McMillan was an organ donor.

“Adam McMillan is a hero,” Neil said. “He’ll continue to live in others.”

Neil said McMillan marks the third on-duty death of a Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office deputy since 1984.

McMillan was with the Sheriff’s Office for 19 years. Chief Deputy Mark Schoonover described him as dependable and “a really good guy.”

“It’s very difficult. The Sheriff’s Office is a big family,” Schoonover said. “And when one of our deputies gets injured like this, it’s, it’s painful for everyone.”

On the day of McMillan’s death, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine ordered all U.S. and State of Ohio flags be flown at half-staff upon all public buildings and grounds throughout Hamilton County and at the Ohio Statehouse, Vern Riffe Center and Rhodes Tower in honor of his life and service.

Flags shall remain lowered until sunset on the day of his interment, according to the release.
