A 17-year-old female was airlifted from Blumenort to Winnipeg late Wednesday afternoon after falling from the back of a pickup truck.

Police said in release on Thursday morning that the truck’s tail gate was open as she and a 17-year-old friend were exercising a dog, with it running alongside the truck.

The vehicle, driven by her friend’s 49-year-old father, accelerated and she fell out of the back of truck, suffering head injuries.

The teen was flown to Health Sciences Centre in critical condition but has since stabilized. Her injuries are now considered non-life threatening.

Police said alcohol is not considered a factor.
