An 18-year-old North Richland Hills boy was killed Thursday evening in what his friends described as an “air surfing” accident.

Police spokesman Keith Bauman said the teen was in a vehicle that was exiting Interstate 820 onto Davis Boulevard at about 7:40 p.m.

Friends told police he opened the passenger door of the moving vehicle. He leaned out, lost his grip and fell.

The teen died at the scene. No one else in the vehicle was hurt, Bauman said.
