A 16-year-old Clearfield girl remained in critical condition Tuesday, the day after she fell from the bed of a pickup truck and landed on her head.

Clearfield police said Tuesday that there had been no change in the condition of the girl, who was sitting on the edge of the truck’s bed about 3 p.m. Monday when she lost her balance as the vehicle made a turn near 300 West and 2300 South.

Police said both the driver and a second passenger riding in the truck’s bed were also teenage girls, and like the victim had just gotten out of classes for the day at Clearfield High School.

The victim, whose name was not released, was flown by medical helicopter to University Hospital in Salt Lake City.
