NEWPORT BEACH ( — The 17-year-old driver in a Memorial Day crash that killed five teens, including himself, in Newport Beach had a clean toxicology report, according to the Orange County coroner.

Abdulrahman M. Alyahyan, who the California Department of Motor Vehicles reported was driving without a license, did not have drugs, alcohol or over-the-counter medication in his system at the time of the accident.

Passengers Cecilia Zamora and Robin Cabrera had cough medicine and antihistamines in their systems, according to the Los Angeles Times. Reports for Nozad al Hamawendi, 17, and Aurora Cabrera, 16, were not available.

Around 5:20 p.m. May 27, a vehicle driven by Alyahyan slammed into a tree and split in half at Jamboree Road and Island Lagoon Drive.

Four of the victims were ejected from the car, and another was burned, authorities said.

Four teens were pronounced dead at the scene, and the fifth was declared dead at Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo.

Police believe speed was a major factor in the crash.
