A coroner in Ohio says all six of the teens killed in an SUV crash drowned after the vehicle landed upside down in a pond.

The final autopsies on the victims were completed Tuesday.

The coroner says it will be several weeks before tests will reveal whether drugs played a role in the crash.

A crash report released Tuesday by the State Highway Patrol said the 19-year-old driver of the SUV that was later reported stolen didn't have a valid license.

A teen who escaped the Sunday morning crash in Warren told a trooper that the driver, Alexis Cayson, sped up just as the SUV rounded what's known as "Dead Man's Curve."

Cayson was among those killed. The six who died were 14 to 19 years old.
