A 16-year-old is fighting for his life after falling from a moving car in Kingwood Sunday morning, according to police.

Officers with the Houston Police Department said the teen was riding with four of his juvenile friends in a Jeep without doors when he took off his seatbelt.

He was reportedly holding onto a strap when it broke, causing him to fall out of the moving Jeep onto the pavement, according to Sgt. David Rose.

First responders transported the 16-year-old to the Texas Children’s Hospital in critical condition.

Police say no charges have been filed.
