WARREN, Ohio — Investigators spent Monday trying to piece together why eight teenagers were crammed into a speeding SUV without the owner’s permission when it flipped over into a pond, killing six of them.
Authorities gave no details on where the group of friends had been and why they were out around daybreak Sunday.
No one in the group had asked to take the vehicle, and its owner was not related to any of the teens, said State Highway Patrol Lt. Brian Holt. It was registered to someone from Youngstown, about 20 miles away.
“That’s all we know right now,” Holt said.
