WARREN-- Two teens who survived a crash in northeastern Ohio last weekend that killed six of their friends told a homeowner after running for help that the 19-year-old at the wheel had been driving crazy before their SUV rolled into a pond.
The driver, Alexis Cayson -- who didn't have a valid license according to a report on the Sunday crash -- was among those who died.
A coroner said yesterday the victims who died had all drowned. It will be several weeks before tests reveal whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
Brian Henry had been sitting in the front passenger season and told investigators he pleaded for Cayson to slow down. Instead, he says she sped up when the vehicle rounded what's known in Warren as "Dead Man's Curve." Henry and Asher Lewis both swam out of the submerged SUV after Henry broke out the rear window with his elbow
