Five hurt when car rear-ends school bus
Five students received minor injuries Friday morning when a car struck a school bus from behind about 7:30 a.m. on Hudson Avenue. The bus, with 39 kids on board, slowed down for a stop near Cobra Way, the Florida Highway Patrol said. Kyle Wilkins, a student at Hudson High School, was behind it in a 2003 Honda and failed to stop in time. Wilkins and four students on the bus were taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point with minor injuries. Hudson Middle School principal Steve Van Gorden said his school's two students were checked at the hospital and were back in class before 9 a.m. Their parents were notified, he said. Wilkins was given a careless driving citation.
Mentally ill killer has been deported
Enrique Garcia is going back to Mexico. The 36-year-old mentally ill man admitted to stabbing a man 31 times — eight in the groin — in 1999 but was found not guilty of the murder because of his insanity. He had been confined to a state hospital since then but was cleared this week by a judge to be released to an unsecured treatment center in Tarpon Springs. But the Agency for Community Treatment Services then decided it didn't want Garcia, a Mexican in the United States illegally. That set mental health officials on a search for a different home for Garcia. It also spurred immigration authorities to begin deportation proceedings against him. The State Attorney's Office said Friday that Garcia had been deported.
