A sport utility vehicle carrying eight people crashed into a guardrail and landed in a pond early Sunday in northeast Ohio, killing six teenagers, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.

The sport utility vehicle landed in a pond near the city of Warren, about 60 miles east of Cleveland.

St. Joseph Health Center says two of the six teenagers killed by a one-vehicle crash died while receiving treatment, and two other teens were treated for bruises and minor injuries and were released.

A nursing supervisor at the hospital in Warren says two of the six teenagers died while receiving treatment "hypothermic drowning trauma."

All those killed were ages 14 to 19, authorities said. 

Fifteen-year-old Daylan Ray is among the dead. His father, Derrick Ray, says his son was an aspiring prep football player who was out with friends.

The names of the other victims haven not been released, while family members were being contacted.
