(BROWNSTOWN) - An 18-year-old Norman resident who sustained internal injuries in an incident Tuesday morning at Brownstown Central High School remains hospitalized in serious condition at Indianapolis.

Cody Trowbridge was treated by medical personnel with Jackson County Emergency Medical Service and taken to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour with internal injuries after the incident, reported in a parking lot on the south side of the school.

Trowbridge was injured when he became pinned between two vehicles just before 8:07 a.m. Tuesday.

Trowbride then was flown by LifeLine helicopter to Methodist Hospital, where he was listed in serious condition Wednesday afternoon, according to hospital spokesman Gene Ford.

According to Brownstown Police Chief Tom Hanner, Towbridge was running in the school parking lot when he was pinned between the two vehicles.

"He was just at the wrong place at the wrong time," Hanner says. "It was an accident and no criminal charges will be filed."

At the time of the accident 18-year-old Lucas Singer, was backing his 1998 Dodge flat-bed pickup truck from a parking space and at the same time a 2008 GMC pickup driven by 17-year-old Chase Klinge was coming around the corner.

"Cody ran into the path of the two vehicles," Hanner says. "He was pinned between the trucks."

All three of the boys are students at Brownstown Central High School.
