A teenager was in critical condition at a Fort Worth hospital Thursday after the pickup he was hanging onto crashed into a house in north Fort Worth, police said.
The pickup driver told police that the 17-year-old ran up to the truck at an intersection, reached inside and began to assault him, police said.
The motorist said he drove a short distance with the teen hanging onto the door and assaulting him until he lost control, left the street and crashed into a house in the 3800 block of Longstraw Drive.
The 911 call about the crash was made about 10 p.m.
Officers found a red Dodge pickup against the house. The residents were not injured, authorities said.
The pickup driver had a leg injury and his passenger was uninjured, police said. Because of the 17-year-old’s injuries, investigators couldn’t interview him.
No one had been arrested as of Thursday afternoon. Detectives continued to investigate, police said.
