Teen girl critically hurt after being thrown from top of car at Durango High

A 16-year-old Las Vegas girl was hospitalized with critical injuries Thursday morning after police say she was thrown from the top of a moving car.

Police were called to the parking lot of Durango High School, 7100 W. Dewey Drive, about 3 a.m. where the 15-year-old driver of a 2004 Toyota Sienna had swerved around a speed bump, Metro said in a release. The girl, who was “possibly holding onto the luggage rack,” was thrown from the car and injured.

She was taken to University Medical Center with critical injuries, Las Vegas police said.

No further information was available Thursday afternoon.
