Football injury clinic helps players hurt under the Friday night lights

Good Thursday evening. Here's a look at some of the stories we're working on here in the WAFF 48 newsroom.

Now that football season's in full swing, injuries are sure to follow. And there's one hospital in the valley that's started a special clinic to deal with those injuries. WAFF 48's Shumuriel Ratliff will have more on Huntsville Hospital's Friday Night Injury Clinic. It's set up with area football players in mind for injuries that can't wait until the next day or the following Monday. Shumuriel will talk to a local mother who took advantage of the clinic when her son nearly broke his arm.

We're also continuing to follow the lawsuit that's been filed by the family members of the victim in a fatal wreck in Fayetteville, Tennessee. The family of Henry Holt is suing the city of Fayetteville, the Fayetteville Police Department, the police officer involved, as well as Misty Shelton to the tune of $7.4 million. Shelton is accused of stealing a Fayetteville Police cruiser over the weekend as she was being arrested and slamming into an SUV driven by Holt. WAFF 48 was in Nashville today and we'll hear from members of Henry Holt's family.

And in a WAFF 48 News Investigation, we'll let you know about something called "curbstoning." This is when you when you buy a vehicle from a person you think is an individual seller. But it turns out, the seller is actually an unlicensed dealer trying to sell a number of used cars. WAFF 48's Margo Gray will have more on how it's done and how you can avoid becoming a victim.

We hope you'll join us for these stories and more after NFL football.

See you then,
