A car crash in Ohio this weekend killed 6 teens.
The Honda Passport was carrying eight teenagers when it crashed into a guardrail just south of Warren, about 60 miles east of Cleveland, on Sunday morning. The two survivors ran to a nearby house after the crash in order to call 911. Unfortunately, emergency responders could not save the other passengers.
All of the victims were between the age of 15 and 19.
According to Boston.com, the SUV flipped after it hit the guardrail and landed upside down in a swamp. Five of the teens were trapped inside the SUV while the other victim was thrown from the vehicle.
Lt. Anne Ralston didn’t know where the teens were headed at the time of the crash and did not know the cause of the crash. It is also unclear who was driving at the time. Police did say, however, that the car appeared to be overloaded and that no one in the vehicle was wearing a seat belt.
An investigation is currently underway to determine the cause of the crash.
Derrick Ray, the father of 15-year-old Daylan Ray who perished in the crash, said: ‘‘All I know is my baby is gone.”
Daylan’s 12-year-old half-sister, Mariah Bryant, added: “It hurts, it really does, because they are so young and, like, they could have had so much more to life … We just really started getting close, and it’s hard to believe he’s gone.”
Police identified the victims as 19-year-old Alexis Cayson, 17-year-old Brandon Muray, 14-year-old Andrique Bennett, and 15-year-olds Kirkland Behner, Ramone White, and Daylan Ray.
The two survivors, 18-year-old Brian Henry and 15-year-old Asher Lewis, were treated at the hospital for bruises before they were released.
