UC WR injured in crash that killed teammate released from hospital

Mark Barr

Finally, there’s some positive news coming out of an utter tragedy for the Cincinnati football program.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, wide receiver Mark Barr has been released from the hospital after a nearly one-month stay.  A UC official told the paper that Barr “continues to make steady progress” and has been transferred to a rehab facility as he continues to recuperate from unspecified injuries.

Barr had been listed in critical condition for over two weeks following a one-car accident late on the night of Sept. 21.

A teammate, offensive lineman Ben Flick, was killed in the accident while another teammate, fellow wide receiver Javon Harrison, suffered minor injuries.  The driver of the vehicle, an 18-year-old friend of Flicks, died two days later due to the injuries he sustained in the crash.
