A teen was rushed to hospital with serious head injuries after an apparent stunt went awry in a parking garage at a Mississauga mall.

Paramedics and police arrived at Square One shopping centre around 6:30 p.m. to find an injured 19-year-old on the pavement.

Police said he was holding on to the back of a van that was circling the parking garage at the mall when he fell and struck his head.

The driver of the van has been arrested and police are trying to determine whether any charges will be laid.
