Highway patrol officials say speed was a factor in Sunday's early morning crash of a sport utility vehicle that killed six teenagers in the northeast Ohio.
Ohio Highway Patrol Lieutenant Brian Holt wouldn't estimate the speed the Honda Passport was traveling when it crashed into a guardrail and flipped over into a swampy pond at about 7 a.m. Sunday. Holt wouldn't comment on whether alcohol or drugs were involved. Two boys escaped from the submerged vehicle and ran a quarter-mile to a home to call 911. The crash remains under investigation. The Warren Post of the Ohio Highway Patrol identified the victims:
Injured: Brian K. Henry, Age 18, of Warren, Ohio - Asher C. Lewis, Age 15, of Warren, Ohio
