WARREN, Ohio (AP) -- A report says the driver of an SUV that crashed and killed six friends in northeast Ohio didn't have a valid license.
The crash report released Tuesday by the State Highway Patrol also says a teen who survived the crash told a state trooper that it felt like the 19-year-old woman behind the wheel was driving 80 mph.
Another teen who escaped the Sunday morning crash in Warren told a trooper that the driver, Alexis Cayson, sped up just as the SUV rounded what's known as "Dead Man's Curve."
Cayson was among those killed.
The owner of the sport utility vehicle told police Monday that it had been stolen although it's not clear whether all of the teens knew that.
The six who died were 14 to 19 years old.
