Six teenagers were killed and two others were injured after the SUV they were in flipped into a pond in northeast Ohio on Sunday morning, news sources reported.

Investigators say the Honda Passport hit a guardrail, flipped over into a pond, and sank with five passengers trapped inside, and a sixth was thrown from the SUV and found under it when the vehicle was removed from the water, according to the Associated Press.

The two survivors that escaped ran to a nearby home to call 911, USA Today reported.

The teens, ages 14 to 19, took the vehicle without permission, the Associated Press reported.

Police said the SUV was traveling over 70 mph when the driver lost control, according to USA Today.
