The rider escaped the property and was treated by paramedics before he was airlifted to the University of Alberta Hospital with severe but non-life threatening injuries.
Police arrested the youth and said he will answer to charges in St. Paul Provincial Court on Sept 1. Police did not say whether charges have already been laid, or what those charges may be.
Frog Lake is about 250 km east of Edmonton.
