The vehicle in the crash that killed six teens on Sunday morning was stolen. The SUV went off the road with eight teens crammed inside and it came to rest upside down in a pond, trapping five of six teens inside underwater. According to Yahoo News on March 11, 2013, the sixth teen was thrown from the vehicle and was found under the SUV when it was pulled from the pond. One of the boys who escaped the crash talked to Fox News live on Monday.
The two teens who survived the crash were able to kick out the rear window of the vehicle and escape the watery grave that claimed the lives of their friends. None of the teens were wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash reports Fox News on Monday.
Brian Henry, one of the two boys that escaped the crash, was interviewed on Fox News live on Monday. He reports the crash threw him against the dash board, with the impact knocking him out. He believes he "woke up" due to the water in the pond being so cold.
The owner of the vehicle went to the police department on Monday to report the SUV stolen. He also told police that he didn't know any of the eight teens in the horrific crash. The information released so far about some of these teens suggests that riding in a stolen vehicle is not something those who knew them would expect.
Parents of the teens thought their children were at a sleep-over at a friend's house, but in reality it appears they staged that story and attended a party all night. This would explain why they were on the road at dawn. Authorities are not sure if all the teens realized that the vehicle they were riding in was stolen.
