6 teens killed, 2 hurt in crash

WARREN, Ohio — A sport utility vehicle carrying eight teenagers crashed into a guardrail Sunday morning and landed in a swampy pond in northeast Ohio, killing six of them and injuring the others, the state highway patrol said.

The Honda Passport veered off the left side of a road, hit a guardrail and overturned just south of the city of Warren, about 60 miles east of Cleveland, Lieutenant Anne Ralston said.

Investigators say it came to rest in the swamp and sank with five of the victims trapped inside. A sixth victim who was thrown from the SUV during the crash was found under it when the vehicle was taken out of the water.

Two survivors escaped and ran to a nearby home to call 911, the highway patrol said.

Ralston did not know where the teens were headed. She did not release the possible causes of or factors in the crash.

Two of the teens, both 15, were brought to a hospital in cardiac arrest, St. Joseph Health Center nursing supervisor Julie Gill said, and were pronounced dead there. She said they were treated for hypothermic drowning trauma, indicating they had been submerged in cold water.
