The 19-year-old woman behind the wheel of an allegedly stolen SUV when it crashed into a pond, killing six friends, didn’t have a valid driver’s license, according to a report on the crash released Tuesday.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol report also said the teens who escaped told investigators the driver, Alexis Cayson, was driving recklessly and one said she sped up as she rounded what’s known as “Dead Man’s Curve.”

Cayson was among those killed along with five boys. Two passengers survived.

The car was reported stolen on Monday, more than a day after the crash. It wasn’t clear if the passengers knew the car was stolen.
