On the evening of Friday May 27th, 2011 at approximately 10:00pm, five teenage boys were playing football at a residence in Tecumseh. An 18-year-old male jumped onto the hood of his motor vehicle as a friend was sitting in the driver’s seat. The vehicle was then driven at a very slow speed, with the teen laying on the hood. The teen jumped off the hood, landed on his feet and the momentum caused him to fall to the pavement, where he struck his head on the cement curb causing a critical head injury.
The teen was transported by paramedics to Hotel Dieu Hospital, where he is currently in critical condition.
Members of the Tecumseh Ontario Provincial Police, the Essex County Crime Unit and the Technical Traffic Collision Investigation Unit attended the scene, and the accident is currently under investigation.
