ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — A University of Georgia student who survived a crash that killed four of her friends has been moved to an Atlanta rehabilitation center, a center spokeswoman said.

Agnes Kim was admitted to the brain unit of the Shepherd Center in Atlanta on Thursday, Jane Sanders said in a statement emailed to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (

No further details about her condition were released.

"Ms. Kim's family is appreciative for the outpouring of support from the University of Georgia community and the public, but have requested privacy at this time," Sanders said in the statement.

Four other students who were passengers in a car driven by Kim were killed in the April 27 crash on a highway in Oconee County, a few miles south of the university's Athens campus. The Georgia State Patrol said Kim's car crossed the highway's centerline and crashed into an oncoming vehicle.

Those who died were identified as Kayla Leigh Canedo, 19, of Alpharetta; Brittany Katherine Feldman, 20, of Alpharetta; Christina Devon Semeria, 19, of Milton; and Halle Grace Scott, 19, of Dunwoody.

Kim's pastor, Lee Mason of Classic City Church in Athens, had said she was in a coma immediately following the crash. A marketing major, Kim had been scheduled to graduate from the university this month.

Sheriff's officials have said the driver of the other car, Abby Short, was released from a hospital shortly after the crash and is recovering from her injuries at home.
