A 16-year-old Michigan boy was injured after a high-speed crash that happened on Friday afternoon, July 2, in Steuben County.

According to Sheriff Rodney Robinson, the boy was driving a silver 2012 Jeep Liberty at a high rate of speed eastbound on State Road 120 just before 2 p.m. when his vehicle left the south side of the road and slammed into the concrete structure of the I-80/90 bridge spanning over the roadway.

The teen suffered serious injuries to his lower extremities and was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital in critical condition.

Police say he was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash but airbags did deploy.

Marijuana is believed to be a factor, according to police.
