New Haven police say a 21-year-old man is in critical condition after being thrown from the hood of a car he was riding on as part of a game.

Michael Carey, of Huntington Street in New Haven, was conscious and speaking with investigators on Saturday night despite his injuries. Police say he flew off the hood after the driver, Naquasia Ricks of West Haven, hit the brakes.

Police say Carey willingly rode on the hood as part of what they called a dangerous game. They say there was no criminal involvement.

Carey was taken to Yale New Haven hospital, where he is recovering.

Two passengers were in the car at the time of the incident. Police are continuing to investigate.
