WARREN, Ohio (AP) - A speeding sport utility vehicle taken without permission and carrying eight teenagers crashed into a guardrail Sunday morning and flipped over into a swampy pond in northeast Ohio, killing five boys and the young woman driving, the state highway patrol said.

The Honda Passport veered off the left side of a road and overturned just south of the city of Warren, about 60 miles east of Cleveland, Lt. Anne Ralston said. Investigators say it came to rest upside down in the swamp and sank with five of the victims trapped inside. A sixth, who was thrown from the SUV during the crash, was found under it when the vehicle was taken out of the water.

The two boys who survived escaped from the submerged vehicle and ran a quarter-mile to a home to call 911, the highway patrol said.

State Highway Patrol Lt. Brian Holt said at an evening news conference that speed was a factor, although investigators were still trying to determine the speed at the time of the accident.

Jasmine McClintock, 22, a friend of a victim, visited the crash scene and said it should serve as a warning for parents to be aware of their children's activities.

"I hope it's an eye-opener for parents," she said while watching the slow ripple of the pond water littered with debris, some apparently from the crash.

McClintock said she was troubled by the question of what the victims were doing out at that hour, not knowing if they had been out all night or left home early.

"That's the part that boggles my mind. It's like on a Sunday if you're not going to church, what are you doing at 7 a.m. out driving," she asked.

Poor parenting and speed is a lethal combination

I wonder how much the media will be told to "leave out" the part that the SUV was stolen?

hey reality...yea, I just saw this...that the suv was stolen and the 19yr old woman driver that was also killed had no right to license....maybe the Govt. can enact some laws to protect these kind of stupid people...yea,after more guns laws, they can make it so all persons that own a car, must keep it locked up in a fool proof cabinet or know so no one can steal they want to do with legal gun's going to be hard to regulate stupid

Usually I think people should refrain from having negative comments in situations like this, but this is definately an example of the "DARWIN" theory, and the lack of adult supervision. Unfortunately the victims will be made out to be "martyr" -like with tattoos amd windshield stickers on cars by some friends and relatives. I imagine some will even utter the phrase ,"Why does G o D have to take people so young?"

Dino - I hate to call a spade and spade but it appears these kids had nothing else to do other than steal and joy ride. Oh, and the 18 yr old had a 4 yr old kid already, but what teenage mother wants to stay home and be a responsible parent these days? Heck no - go get knocked up and have a few more - we will pay for them!
