(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.
