Sickles High student struck, injured by car

TAMPA — A Sickles High School student was struck by a car driven by a fellow student and injured Tuesday afternoon while trying to dash across Gunn Highway, authorities said.

Paramedics rushed Andrew Dennis, 14, to St. Joseph's Children's Hospital after the crash at 3:15 p.m. near 7700 Gunn Highway, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

No information was yet available about the ninth-grader's condition, but a sheriff's spokeswoman said he was conscious when transported.

The 1999 Honda Civic that struck him was driven by Sebastian Rueda, 18, of Tampa, a Sickles High senior.

The Sheriff's Office said it did not anticipate filing any charges in the crash.
