BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

The Butler County Sheriff's Office released new details about the crash that killed Ben Flick and Sean Van Dyne. 

The crash happened on September 21 in Hanover Township on Stahlheber Road. 

Blood alcohol tests show that the driver of the car, Sean Van Dyne, had a blood alcohol level of .056. That is below the .08 that's the line for drunk driving for persons over 21, but well above the legal limit of .02 for underage people. 

Investigators also found that Van Dyne was driving at approximately 85-miles-per-hour within seconds of the crash. 

Deputies report that Van Dyne and Flick were not wearing seat belts. Deputies say the two survivors wear seated in the back, wearing seatbelts.

Flick died at the scene, Van Dyne died a few days later in University of Cincinnati Medical Center. 

The four were driving riving home from the Bearcats' 14-0 win against Miami-Ohio when the crash occurred. Because of redshirting, Flick and classmates did not travel or dress with the team. 

Flick was a 19-year-old freshman lineman for the University of Cincinnati.  VanDyne was in the School of Business and recently married to Miami freshman, Rachel VanDyne. 

Investigators are still waiting for the final toxicology report.
