Six teenagers lost their lives in a terrible car accident in Trumbull County in Warren Sunday, March 10.
Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. Brian Holt said eight students riding in a 1998 Honda Passport were traveling south on Pine Street around 7 a.m. when their vehicle careened to the left side of the road, hit a guardrail, and flipped over into a nearby pond.
The passengers in the car were Alexis Cayson, 19; Andrique Bennett, 14; Kirkland M. Behner, 15; Daylan Ray, 15; Brandon A. Murray, 17; Ramone M. White, 15; Brian K. Henry, 18; and Asher C. Lewis, 15.
All but Henry and Lewis were killed in the accident. The two survivors were treated at St. Joseph Health Center and Trumbull Memorial, respectively.
Warren City Council President Bob Dean, a victim’s relative, divulged his plans to set up a fund to pay for the funeral services of the deceased.
The loss of so many young lives is a tragedy for all those affected and the community. The thoughts and condolences of our team at Stepleton Dugan, LLC, go out to everyone who has been touched by this accident.
