(Newser) – The young woman driving the SUV that crashed into a pond Sunday in Ohio, leaving six teens dead, did not have a driver's license, reports AP. And based on accounts from the two male survivors, police say Alexis Cayson was driving way too fast on a curvy road with a 35mph limit. In fact, the survivors say she sped up as she approached a turn known as Dead Man's Curve and lost control. Meanwhile, nine more teens have been killed in two more accidents, reports NBC News:

  • In rural Will County, Illinois, four high school students ages 15 to 17 were pulled from their vehicle this morning after it ended up overturned in a creek last night, reports the Chicago Tribune. It looks like the car went through a guardrail and over a bridge, perhaps after hitting ice or standing water.
  • In Dumas, Texas, five teens were killed when the car they were in ran a stop sign and collided with a fuel tanker, reports AP. All five, ranging in age from 15 to 17, were pronounced dead at the scene Sunday. The truck driver is in critical condition.

No license. Stolen car. Darwin award for the driver. Darwin awards to the others too for being with a criminal. Meanwhile, the life and death cycle continues...
