Driver Dies After Crash That Killed UC Athlete

CINCINNATI (AP) -- An 18-year-old driver has died following the single-vehicle crash that killed one Cincinnati football player and injured two others.

University of Cincinnati Medical Center confirmed Tuesday that Sean VanDyne of Hamilton had died.

Authorities say VanDyne was driving with three freshman Cincinnati players returning from the Bearcats' 14-0 win Saturday night at Miami University in Oxford, 25 miles north of Cincinnati.

The crash killed offensive lineman Ben Flick of Hamilton and injured receivers Mark Barr of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Javon Harrison of Dayton. They were redshirting and didn't dress for the game or travel with the team.

VanDyne was a freshman at Miami. A family statement released by the hospital says VanDyne and Flick had been best friends since second grade.

The Bearcats have a bye week this week.

UC Football Player Dies in Crash; Three Others Injured

HUBER HEIGHTS -- A tragic crash after the Cincinnati Bearcats football game Saturday night leaves one player dead and three others injured.

The crash happened around 10:20 p.m. at the intersection of Stahlheber and Morman Roads in Hanover Township.

One of those players in the car was a star player last year at Wayne High School.

Javon Harrison was in a car with three friends after the Bearcats game at Miami University, when the driver reportedly drove off the road.

We're told Harrison was able to climb out a back window.

"I know he has a broken ankle, a separated shoulder, fracture in his back and partially collapsed lung," said Wayne Basketball Coach Travis Trice.

Trice is a family friend and knows the star quarterback while he played at Wayne.

"He's a tremendous competitor. He did whatever it took to win and more importantly I saw his guys respected him and followed him."

Trice says Harrison is in high spirits but heartbroken over his teammate and friend Ben Flick who was killed.

Flick was a graduate of Hamilton High School.

Another teammate, Mark Barr of Florida, remains in the hospital.

UC Director of Athletics Whit Babcock released a statement following the crash.

"The Bearcats family has suffered a great tragedy. All three young men are great representatives of the university and their team."

Trice asks for prayers for the family.

"Continue to lift him up, his family up. The early prognosis is a couple  months from now he should be fully recovered," Trice said.

The students were not on the team bus because they are red shirting this year.

The Butler County Sheriff's Office Accident Investigation Unit continues to investigate the crash -- they believe alcohol was a factor.

Earlier coverage:

CINCINNATI -- The University of Cincinnati has confirmed that three players from the football team were involved in a deadly accident Saturday night.

They released the following statement:
      
University of Cincinnati football student-athlete Ben Flick (Hamilton, Ohio/Hamilton) died and Mark Barr (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas) and Javon Harrison (Dayton, Ohio/Huber Hts. Wayne) were injured in a single-vehicle accident in Hanover Township Saturday night.
 
Flick, an offensive lineman, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was 19-years-old.
 
The crash occurred around 10:30 p.m. on Stahlheber Road near Morman Road in Butler County.

Barr and Harrison, both wide receivers, were transported to UC Medical Center via helicopter along with the driver of the vehicle, whose name has not been released. Barr and the driver are in critical condition and Harrison is in stable condition.
 
The three student-athletes, all true freshmen, had attended the Bearcats 14-0 win over rival Miami (Ohio) in Yager Stadium earlier Saturday, but due to redshirting this season, did not dress or travel with the team.
 
I cant put into words how tragic this is, Head Coach Tommy Tuberville said. As a father and a coach, its something you hope you never have to go through. Ben was so proud to be a part of this team and University. He worked hard and had shown a great deal of improvement since the summer. His future was bright. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Flick family on their loss. We also hope and pray for Mark and Javon to recover from their injuries.
 
UC Director of Athletics Whit Babcock offered support to the families and the Bearcats football team.
 
"The Bearcats family has suffered a great tragedy, Babcock said. All three young men are great representatives of the University and their team. Our hearts go out to all the families involved. We are doing all we can to help and support them along with the rest of our student-athletes."
