Dick Hilinski, All-Big Ten and third string All-American football tackle at Ohio State last year, was killed Friday night in an auto accident 15 miles northeast of Ann Arbor.
Hilinski, 24, was thrown from a foreign make car driven by Sylvester J. Blake, 25 of Columbus, Ohio.
Sheriff's officers said the car went out of control as it met another car on a curve.
Hilinski, hurled 45 feet from the car, died almost instantly of head injuries. Blake also suffered a head injury but was released from a hospital after treatment.
The two were en route to Fenton, Mich., for a wedding Saturday.
Hilinski completed eligibility at Ohio State last year but was helping out the coaching staff this year while taking graduate work in medical school.
