Joseph Devenney/Getty Images(WARREN, Ohio) — Six young lives were snuffed out early Sunday morning near Warren, Ohio, when a Honda SUV carrying eight teenagers veered off a road, struck a guardrail and landed upside down in a pond.

Authorities say two of the occupants managed to get out of the vehicle and call for help, but the others were not able to get out.  First responders from the Warren County Fire Department pulled the six victims out of the water.

Lt. Brian Holt of the Ohio State Highway Patrol says the vehicle was traveling above the posted speed limit.

Holt said the two teens who survived were treated for minor injuries at a local hospital and released.

The site of the crash has been turned into a makeshift memorial for the deceased, who ranged in age from 14 to 19.
