A Lubbock teen was in critical condition Monday evening at Covenant Medical Center.  Authorities tell us 14-year-old Brandon Byrd suffered a severe head injury during a motocross event over the weekend.

Byrd was riding his dirt bike at Veretto Motocross Park Sunday.  The park, also known as Steel Roost MX Park, is northwest of Levelland in Hockley County. Authorities say Byrd fell off his bike while doing a jump, and hit his head.

Byrd attends Irons Middle School in Lubbock. Friends have already posted several well-wishes on his myspace page.  That's also where NewsChannel 11 found pictures of Byrd riding his dirt bike. 

The Hockley County Sheriff's Office tells NewsChannel 11 they're still investigating, but they say it appears to be a very tragic accident.

We'll keep folks up to date on Byrd's condition.
