Two 17-year-old teenage boys took turns “car surfing” on the hood of a car in a parking lot in Colorado Springs. One of the boys fell off the car and was critically injured. The car accident happened on Sunday at The Citadel.
Police said the two were taking turns standing on the hood of the car while the other drove in circles when the one fell.
Lieutenant Skip Arms said the driver faces a felony vehicular assault charge, and the injured boy could also be charged. The teen who was arrested had fallen and hurt his wrist before taking over the wheel, Arms said.
There have been incidents in the past of teenagers dying in car surfing accidents in Colorado. The most recent was two years ago and it also involved a Colorado Springs teenager.
