    A Northern Virginia teen is in critical condition with a severe head injury after falling off a car in a Sterling parking lot.

    The accident was reported around 10 p.m. Tuesday in the Ethan Allen parking lot at 45000 Dulles Crossing Plaza.

    Authorities said a 17-year-old boy fell from the trunk area of a Subaru as a man drove it in the parking lot. The teen was trying to record video footage of the ride, but when the driver made a turn, the teen fell off and suffered a serious head injury, authorities said.

    The victim was airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital where he remains in critical condition.

    Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story said the teen was riding a skateboard while holding onto the car.
