WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a 15-year-old skateboarder was seriously injured while being pulled down a street by a car.
The Wichita Eagle reports that the teen was holding onto an open car window Sunday when he lost control and hit his head on the ground as he fell. Bystanders called 911, and he was rushed to a hospital, where he remained in critical condition Monday.
Wichita police Officer Charley Davidson says another 15-year-old also was being pulled by the car at the time. But that teen was able to let go and stopped safely.
Davidson says the teen’s 16-year-old friend was in the driver’s seat. The case will be presented to prosecutors for possible criminal charges, while adding that speed and alcohol aren’t believed to be a factor.
