A 16-year-old boy was in "very critical" condition Thursday, a day after he fell while attempting to climb from the passenger side window into the bed of a moving pickup truck.
West Jordan police Sgt. Drew Sanders said the 3 p.m. Wednesday incident remained under investigation, and no citations or charges were immediately filed.
The boy was in the truck with the 18-year-old driver near 9044 S. Granada Hills Drive (4730 West) when the 16-year-old decided to get into the back of the truck. When the driver looked to see what his passenger was up to, the truck swerved and the driver overcorrected; the teen lost his balance and fell to the pavement.
