WARREN -- A crash report says the driver of an SUV that crashed and killed six friends in northeast Ohio didn't have a valid license.
Brian Henry, 18, and Asher Lewis, 15, were the sole survivors of the tragic crash that took the lives of six other teens in Warren early Sunday morning.
Their statements are included in the Ohio State Highway Patrol crash report released Tuesday.
Asher relates how "We wrecked into the water and I had went blank for a second and I woke up and Brian was busting out the passenger back window. Brian went out first and then I went out and I tried to grab Andrique but couldn't because the water was pushing me."
The two teens said the driver, Alexis Cayson, 19, who didn't have a valid driver's license, was swerving and driving "like 80 mph" in the SUV that she was driving without the permission of the SUV's owner.
Six others - Cayson; Andrique Bennett, 14; Kirklan M. Behner, 15; Daylan Ray, 15; Brandon A. Murray, 14; and Ramone M. White, 15 - died in the crash.
All eight were friends who lived in the same east side neighborhood.
Henry wrote in his statement that he and Lewis went to a nearby home after the crash to call police.
In a call to 911 also released Tuesday, Jacquelyn Kimble, the homeowner, said that the two survivors were "beat up pretty bad." "Can you send an ambulance?" she asks. "Two of my friends got into an accident around Pine Street and they just came over here. They are messed up pretty bad. Can you please send somebody quick?"
Asked if it was a car accident, she replied yes. "One's head's bleeding, they beat up pretty bad," she said.
The car was reported stolen on Monday by Marquis Stephenson, a day after the crash.
One teen said the driver sped up just as the SUV rounded what's known as "Dead Man's Curve."
