Six teenagers have died in an SUV crash in Warren.
WKBN-TV reports that it happened on Pine Avenue just south of downtown Warren before 7 AM Sunday.
Emergency crews responding to the scene found an SUV in a nearby pond, and dive teams went in to try to rescue the injured and recover the vehicle.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol says there were eight people inside what appeared to be an overloaded vehicle, and none of the eight wore a seat belt.
Two others were injured.
NewsNet5.com reports that those who died in the SUV crash were 14 to 19 years old, and that a Warren police officer believes speed was a possible factor. He estimated that the vehicle was traveling at about 70 miles per hour in the industrial area south of downtown Warren.
The accident is still under investigation, but early indications are that alcohol does NOT appear to be a factor in the crash.
