Eighteen-year-old Brian Henry of Warren tells reporters he’s not sure what the group had been doing earlier because he caught a ride with them after the other boys were already in the vehicle.

Henry says he used his elbow to break a window and escape after the crash early Sunday in Warren, about 50 miles southeast of Cleveland. He and another boy who escaped ran to a home to call for help.

The 19-year-old driver and five teenage boys died.

The car was reported stolen Monday. It wasn’t clear whether the passengers knew the car was stolen.
