A Nerdy Kid Saved a Girl From a Drunk Driver and May Not Walk For a Year . . . and She Still Considers Them Just Friends
This kid is a HERO.
15-year-old Kameron Howell-Meeker of Milwaukie, Oregon is a new student at Rex Putnam High School. And about a month ago, he became friends with another new student, 17-year-old Ellie Fielder.
Oh, and Kameron is kinda nerdy, while Ellie is pretty attractive.
Anyway, they were walking down the street together last Tuesday when they saw a TRUCK heading right toward them. A guy named Corey Brownlee was driving drunk . . . and headed straight for Kameron and Ellie.
And Kameron's instinct was to PUSH Ellie out of the way . . . and take the full brunt of the hit himself. He rolled up on the hood, then flew off. Cops came and arrested Corey for drunk driving and assault.
Kameron was hospitalized for two days with a broken pelvis, torn ligaments, a compressed spine, and bad cuts on his face and body. Doctors say he may be able to walk again in a month . . . but it COULD take up to a YEAR.
And even after ALL THAT, it looks like Ellie STILL doesn't have any romantic feelings toward this poor dude. She told the news, quote, "He's going to be my best friend for the rest of my life." (ABC 2 - Portland)
