One man is in critical medical condition at a hospital after falling off the bed of a pickup truck early Friday morning. 

A group of men in their early 20s was traveling in the cab and bed of a pickup from the Teichman neighborhood near Blume Drive to Interstate 45 about 2 a.m., Galveston Police Department spokesman Sgt. Xavier Hancock said. 

One man fell out of the truck and was injured, but police don't know how he fell, Hancock said. 

No charges had been filed as of 12:30 p.m. Friday and the investigation was ongoing, Hancock said. 

The men were not from the area, Hancock said. 

The incident was not related to the motorcycle festival Lone Star Rally, which has an estimated 500,000 attendees this weekend, Hancock said.
