N.C. Student Struck In Hit-And-Run
He was crossing the street with his mother at 2028 Little Rock Road when he was struck by the car, officials said.
A Tuckaseegee Elementary student, Sinclair was transferred to Carolinas Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver actually got out of the car and told a witness Sinclair was going to be fine, before leaving the scene, the witness said. The vehicle is said to be a champagne-colored Mazda Millenia.
Lewis Tyler, who lives across the street from the school, said drivers often speed through that stretch of Little Rock Rd. He told a local reporter that the flashing school light that signals drivers to slow down (from 35 mph to 45 mph) doesn't work.
"There's a flashing school sign, but as of today, it wasn't flashing," he said. "It's just got one solid light."
