Pinellas deputy leaves car crash with minor injuries

ST. PETERSBURG — Authorities said a Pinellas deputy sustained minor injuries after another car crashed into his cruiser on Gandy Boulevard Thursday night.

The deputy, Jason Walker, 38, was driving his marked 2005 Chevrolet Impala east on Gandy in response to a call, blaring his sirens and lights, around midnight, investigators said.

They said his Impala was struck on the right side by another vehicle as Walker slowed to cross the intersection at Gandy and Fourth Street N.

Hae Kim, 54, of Tampa, was driving his 1997 Oldsmobile north on Fourth Street when he crashed into the cruiser, investigators said. He was not injured.

Kim told investigators he was heading home from work.

Walker, who has been with the Sheriff's Office for about 13 years, was treated and released from Bayfront Medical Center.

The Sheriff's Office has not determined if it will press charges, saying the crash remains under investigation.

    HOUSTON — It felt like the beginning on Saturday night at Minute Maid Park, the arrival of a new force on the World Series stage. The Astros are back, for the first time in a dozen years, and they want to stay a while.

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — They can't tackle. They can't cover. They can't pressure the quarterback, let alone sack him.

    TAMPA — Nikita Kucherov is piling up the goals. Steven Stamkos is an assist machine. They make for an impressive pairing in a league that favors scoring pairs over the more traditional three-player scoring lines.

    Bucs

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Hard to believe, but this was only the second time in their history that the Bucs played a regular-season game in Buffalo. After Sunday loss, they wouldn't mind going another 40 years without playing here again.
