6 Teens Killed, 2 Hurt in Northeast Ohio SUV Crash

Posted: Updated:

Authorities say a speeding sport utility vehicle with eight teenagers inside that crashed into a guardrail Sunday morning and flipped over into a swampy pond in northeast Ohio was taken without permission.

The Honda Passport veered off the road and overturned just south of the city of Warren, about 60 miles east of Cleveland, killing five boys and a woman. Investigators say it came to rest upside down in the swamp and sank with five of the victims trapped inside. A sixth, who was thrown from the SUV, was found under it when the vehicle was taken out of the water.

State Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Brian Holt says the two boys who survived escaped from the submerged vehicle and ran a quarter-mile to a home to call 911.

Although Holt says speed was a factor in the wreck, he won't speculate on alcohol and-or drug usage pending toxicology reports.

Holt says no one in the vehicle had permission to take it, but there were no theft reports. The vehicle was licensed to a resident of Youngstown, about 20 miles away.
