Teen injured in jump from moving vehicle

The 17-year-old jumped from a van that his mother was driving on 56 Avenue.

A 17-year-old boy is recovering in hospital after jumping out of a moving van and subsequently being run over by the back wheel of the vehicle late Friday afternoon.

Around 3 p.m., the teen was being driven home by his mom after having a root canal. According to Surrey RCMP, he got into some sort of argument with his mom, who was driving. He then jumped out of the vehicle, which was travelling at about 35 to 40 km/hr in the 19500 block of 56 Avenue. He suffered injuries to his leg and abrasions to his head. He was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital. He is expected to be OK but it was a very dramatic experience for the victim and his mother, said Surrey RCMP. It’s possible he was influenced by the narcotics he may have taken for his root canal, said police.

There was initial indications on Friday that the teen was run over by a vehicle that was following behind. There was also information that he was possibly naked. Both pieces of information are inaccurate, said Surrey RCMP.
