UC football player killed in crash

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

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

Authorities say VanDyne was driving with three freshmen 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.
