WARREN, Ohio (AP) - Highway Patrol officials say speed was a factor in the violent early morning crash of a sports utility vehicle that killed six teenagers in the northeast Ohio.
Ohio Highway Patrol Lt. Brian Holt says at a Sunday night news conference that he 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. He says that speed was an issue with the SUV that was carrying eight teenagers.
Holt says he isn't sure what the speed limit on the two-lane road is and wouldn't estimate the speed that the SUV was traveling. He also says he won't comment on whether alcohol or drugs were involved.
State troopers showed off the wrecked vehicle, the windows cracked and with the most extensive damage to the front end, hood and roof.
