The Fatal Accident
Six teens ranging in age from 14-years-old to 19-years-old were killed on Sunday morning when the SUV transporting them hit a guardrail and overturned into a pond.
The SUV is suspected to have been traveling at a high speed, when 19-year-old driver Alexis Cayson veered to the right of the road, hit a guardrail, and the SUV ultimately ended up in a nearby swampy pond.
Certain details of the accident are still unknown, such as why the teens were driving so early in the morning, how long they had been out, and where the final destination was. It is also unknown whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the fatal accident.
The six teens that were killed in the accident included Alexis Cayson, Andrique Bennett, Brandon Murrary, Kirklan Behner, Daylan Ray, and Ramone White. Our hearts go out to the families of these Ohio teens, as well as their friends and other loved ones.
Families Filing Legal Claims
Although certain details of the accident are still unknown, it is highly likely that the family members of the teenagers that were killed will be able to file a wrongful death claim.
