A Klein Oak High School student is in critical condition after deputies said he was riding on the hood of a moving car for a long period of time and fell. 

The 17-year-old student was taken to Memorial Hermann via Life Flight with a serious head injury, the Harris County Sheriff's Office confirmed.

This happened at about 3 p.m. on school property. A female friend of his was driving the car. 

The district released the following information:

As you may have heard, a Klein Oak student was involved in a serious car accident on the Hildebrandt Intermediate campus earlier today. The student was transported to the hospital by LifeFlight.

We are respecting the family’s privacy and do not have an official update regarding our student’s status at this time. We know you join us in keeping our student and the family in your thoughts. Additional counselors from our district counseling team will be on campus tomorrow for students and staff who have been impacted by this accident and need support.

As always, we appreciate our community and the many ways we look after one another.
