Funeral arrangements have been made for an 18-year-old Miami University student and Hamilton High grad killed in a car accident.
Sean VanDyne died from injuries he received in an accident on September 21 in Hanover Township. It happened on Stahlheber Road near the intersection of Morman Road. Investigators said the vehicle went off the road for an unknown reason.
Emergency crews arrived to find that two of the passengers had been ejected, while the other two were still entrapped in the vehicle.
Ben Flick, 19, of Hamilton, Ohio died at the scene.
The driver, Sean VanDyne, 18, and his two other passengers, Mark Barr, age 18, of Florida, and Javon Harrison, age 18, of Dayton, were injured in the crash. All three were flown from the crash site via medical helicopter to UC Medical Center.
Late Monday evening, a UCMC spokesperson said VanDyne had succumbed to his injuries. He would have turned 19 in October.
Family said VanDyne married his wife in August, after having dating since the 7th grade.
Rachel VanDyne described her husband as always wanting to help others. "If anyone ever had a problem, they would call Sean, that's just how he was," she said.
A visitation has been scheduled for Sunday from 5-9 p.m. at Hamilton High School. The funeral will be held 10 a.m. Monday at Brown Dawson Flick Funeral Home, located at 1350 Millville Avenue. The burial will follow at Hickory Flat Cemetery.
Flick, a University of Cincinnati football player, was laid to rest Wednesday morning at the Queen of Peace Church in Hamilton.
