Six teenagers have died and two were injured in a car crash.
Eight teenagers had been crammed into an SUV that was only supposed to seat five, and no one was wearing their seatbelts. The car was reportedly stolen, and they were speeding down a two-lane northeastern Ohio road, when the black Honda Passport veered over the left side of the road, crashed into a guardrail, and flipped over into a pond.
Investigators are currently trying to determine why the car flipped, with weather not being a factor. This incident was the deadliest traffic accident in Trumbull County history, and the worst in Ohio in the last three years.
The vehicle had been going faster than the 35-mph posted limit, but the exact speed is unknown.
Officers are currently waiting for the results of the toxicology tests, but Holt said there were no signs of alcohol or drugs in the vehicle.
Two of the injured occupants had managed to escape by breaking a rear window in the submerged vehicle, but the others were unlikely. The Ohio State Highway Patrol identified those killed as Alexis Cayson, 19, who has been behind the wheel; Andrique Bennett, 14; Kirklan M. Behner, 15; Daylan Ray, 15; Brandon A. Murray, 14; and Ramone M. White, 15.
