A 19-year-old Jay teen was critically injured Saturday afternoon when he lost control of the vehicle he was driving when it hit standing water.

The van was eastbound on Old Pollard Road, when the teen drove through the water and lost control. The van rotated , struck a mailbox, hit a drainage ditch and became airborne. The right side of the vehicle struck a tree and came to rest of the driver’s side. The teen was ejected and pinned under the van, according to the Florida Highway Patrol media release.
