Teen Personally Injured After Leaping from SUV

A 17-year-old student was still listed in critical condition with personal injuries after he leaped from a moving sport-utility vehicle as part of a weekend game that awarded teens points for recording each other performing certain stunts. The teen was taken to the hospital following the incident and is still in critical condition with personal injuries in St. Charles, Illinois. The student was one of 70 to 80 teenagers to take part in the game where they jumped from automobiles. One way to earn points was to jump from a vehicle moving at 25 m.p.h. The driver and a friend planned to take a photo of the speedometer as the SUV traveled at 25 m.p.h. and then slow down before the jump. However, the boy jumped from the SUV without warning. The police officer found the boy on his back in the center of the roadway with blood around his head. As the police officer provided aid, the Durango’s driver and another student in left in their vehicle, but returned when prompted by the police. The school district has issued a statement that these “games” where in no way related to any school activity. To read the full story, click here.
