WARREN, OH (WOIO) -

19 Action News is uncovering new details into the fatal traffic crash that took the lives of six teenagers in Trumbull County on March 10.

According to The Ohio State Highway Patrol's Warren Post the owner of the 1998 Honda Passport, Marquis Stephenson, reported his SUV stolen on March 11 at 12:02 p.m.

Mr. Stephenson told Warren Police that it was taken from North Feederle Road in Warren.

Officers say that vehicle, containing eight people, was traveling south on Niles-Warren River Road, County Road 69 around 7 a.m. Sunday morning when it veered off the left side of the road, struck a guardrail, and rolled over onto its roof in a nearby pond area. 

Alexis Cayson, 19, Andrique Bennett, 14, Kirklan M. Behner, 15, Daylan Ray, 15, Brandon A. Murray, 14, and Ramone M. White, 15, were killed in the crash. All of the victims were from Warren.

The two survivors, Brian K. Henry, 18, and Asher C. Lewis, 15, also of Warren, were treated for injuries at St. Joseph Health Center and Trumbull Memorial.  Both have since been released.

Henry and Lewis managed to escape the crash and went to a nearby home and called 911.

Five victims were removed from inside the SUV. A sixth victim was ejected and was located under the vehicle.

"I wanted to see what really happened for myself," said Adriel Lampley.

Adriel Lampley says his cousin Brandon Murray was among those killed.  He knew two of the other teens too, 14-year-old Andrique Bennett, known as "Butter," by his friend's, was a standout. 

"He was a golden child.  He had like this glow about him.  He was adorable, really adorable.  Real small.  He just always had this smile on his face. "

Virginia Warren says her niece saw the teens right before the accident. 

She says they came into the gas station where her niece was working right before the crash, "The young man that came in to pay for the gas was happy, smiling. He said that they had been out and were on their way home.  They were going to go home to bed.  He left out the door, and that was it."

The vehicle was registered to Marguis Stephenson of Youngstown. Police are not sure how the teens got the vehicle, or where they were going at the time of the crash. 

Counselors were at Warren G. Harding High School and all 8th grade classrooms to offer support to students and staff members in wake of the tragedy.

An investigation is underway, but police say speed was a factor in the crash.
