Thu., 9:51am: Funeral fund for 6 Warren teens tops $42,000

WARREN -- The organizer of a funeral fund for the six teens killed in a Trumbull County 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, said 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 off Niles-Warren River Road in Howland near the Warren Pine Avenue border. 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.
