        LEBANON - A vehicle that rolled and ejected seven teens on their way to a high school football game Friday was traveling 93 mph in a 55 mph zone, Ohio State Highway Patrol officials said Monday.

        But there is no indication that the driver, identified as 16-year-old Molly O. Wilson, was hill hopping on the stretch of Ohio 741 when she lost control of the 1998 Ford Explorer, said Lt. Mike Sanders, commander of the patrol's Lebanon post.

        Six teens remained hospitalized as state troopers continued to investigate the crash.

        At Middletown Regional Hospital, Wick E. Makse, 15, of Lebanon, was in fair condition and Molly, a Springboro High School student, remained in serious condition.

        Four others, including siblings who were airlifted from the scene, remained at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton.

        Lauren Wiercinski, 16, of Springboro, was in fair condition, and her brother, Adam, 13, remained in serious condition. Angela Blevins, 16, of Springboro, was upgraded to serious.

        No condition was available Monday on Josh Ogelsby, 15, of Springboro, because police said his parents did not want any information released. He was listed in critical condition at Miami Valley Hospital on Saturday.

        Eddie Deaton, 15, of Red Lion, was released from the hospital Saturday.

        Troopers said none of the teens was wearing seat belts.
