WARREN, Ohio (AP) — The organizer of a funeral fund for the six teens killed in a northeast Ohio SUV crash say donations from as far away as Los Angeles pushed the total past $42,000.
Bob Dean, who set up the account at a bank to accept the money, tells The (Youngstown) Vindicator (http://bit.ly/11OTsru ) that the $42,600 was distributed to pay for funeral expenses last week.
The six teens drowned March 10 when a speeding SUV struck a guardrail and flipped into a swampy pond in Warren, about 50 miles southeast of Cleveland. Authorities say the 19-year-old driver didn't have a valid license.
Dean says the money was used to pay for a variety of funeral expenses. The gravesites at a local cemetery were provided by an anonymous donor.
