Posted: Updated:

A 14-year-old boy was thrown from a truck during a crash in Stamford, police say.

The crash happened Saturday on Webbs Hill Road just after 4 p.m.

Police say a pick-up truck driven by an 18-year-old boy lost control, hit a stone wall,  and then a tree before rolling over.

The driver was not injured, but police say the 14-year-old passenger was thrown from the pickup and was found bleeding in the street.

Police say both boys are brothers and that the 14-year-old boy was not wearing his seat belt.  

Police say he was initially taken to Stamford Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, but his condition continued to decline.

He was then life-flighted to Yale-New Haven Hospital in critical condition.

The teen driver is from Stamford, and police say speed may have been a factor in the crash
