A 16-year-old Milan girl was seriously injured when she fell after trying to grab on to a moving car while riding a push scooter Sunday, the Milan News-Leader reports.

Milan police Chief Gerard Scherlinck told the newspaper that the girl suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries after she fell onto the pavement. The girl lost control of the scooter while trying to have a 2010 Ford Explorer pull her, according to the story.

The paper reports a 20-year-old Saline woman was driving the SUV at a speed of about 10 mph when the teen fell. The incident occurred at 8:22 p.m. Sunday in the area of St. Louis Street and Bodley Crescent.

I felt invincible when I was 16 as well...I guess I was lucky.

Way back when I was a kid and skateboards were coming into their own one of my buddies tried grabbing a car bumper for a ride and he got hurt real bad. Not from falling off the skateboard but because his dad caught him and he got an old fashioned spanking.

That's what kids need these days. Get the government out of how we punish our children.
