WARREN, Ohio - As the community continues to mourn last week's accident in Warren, the city's mayor had a message for all teens and kids.
Mayor Doug Franklin offered his and the city's support to victims' families, but added there is a lesson to be learned.
Franklin says he became alarmed after witnessing what happened after one of the vigils for the teens.
"After that rally, I saw kids, young people, riding on cars, riding on top of car hoods with the car doors open. Brothers and sisters, this is no way to honor or respect what has happened we've got to learn from this," Franklin said.
Franklin told the teens at Saturday's funeral for Alexis Cayson that he does not want to see anyone of them acting recklessly with their lives.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol says the driver of that SUV was speeding and the car was only made to seat 5 passengers safely.
There were eight in the vehicle when it clipped the guardrail and flipped over into this pond.
