Mark Barr: University of Cincinnati receiver hurt in fatal accident released from UC Medical Center

Freshman from Florida moved to rehab center

CINCINNATI  --  A University of Cincinnati receiver who was injured in a traffic accident that killed a teammate last month has been released from the UC Medical Center.

Freshman Mark Barr of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is making steady progress in his recovery, a school spokesman said on Tuesday. He was moved to a rehabilitation facility.

Ben Flick, a freshman offensive lineman from Hamilton, Ohio, was killed in the one-vehicle accident on Sept. 21 after a game against Miami University in Oxford. The driver -- Sean Van Dyne, an 18-year-old Miami student -- also died.

Barr and receiver Javon Harrison from suburban Dayton also were passengers. Harrison was treated and released.

The three players were redshirt freshmen who didn't travel with the team. They had attended the game on their own and were heading back to Cincinnati.
