A Lockport teen was rushed to ECMC by Mercy Flight over the weekend after hopping on a friend's car as a joke.

17-year-old Michael Santora was talking to friend Brian Caraco near the corner of Lockwood and Gardnewood Drives.

When Caraco pulled away, Santora jumped on the trunk, according to a state police report.

Caraco went about 100 feet with his friend on the back, then put on the brakes when Santora screamed. At that point, Santora crashed to the pavement, hitting his head. He was treated for a head injury and severe road rash at ECMC.
