CHARLOTTE -- A 12-year-old girl has died in northeast Charlotte after the go-kart she was driving was hit by two cars.

By state law, go-karts are not allowed on roads or highways.

McCarthy says patient privacy laws prevent him from saying when Cierra died.

The car drivers were not injured. Police say speed and alcohol were not contributing factors.
