Car hits 9th grader on curb

Hello again everyone, it's Paul Cameron in the WBTV newsroom. 

Tonight at 5:00PM—a freshman at East Mecklenburg High, standing on the curb, gets clipped by an out-of-control driver this afternoon.  The 15-year old will live, but not without a broken bone and head injuries.  We'll tell you why the driver lost control.
