An 18-year-old Davis man is in critical condition at the UC Davis Medical Center, days after falling off the trunk of a moving vehicle and suffering a head injury, police said.
Lt. Tom Waltz said Christopher Argumedo was one of two people who were riding on the trunk of an Acura sedan Friday night in the area of J Street and Cranbrook Court in East Davis.
“During the course of riding on the trunk, the passenger fell off and hit his head on the ground,” Waltz said. Argumedo was transported to the Med Center in Sacramento, where he remained in critical condition as of Wednesday afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said.
The second person who was riding on the trunk was not hurt, Waltz said. He identified the driver of the car as Hannah Gillis, 19, also of Davis.
Waltz said the incident remains under investigation by the Police Department’s Major Accident Investigation Team.
