A Brandon High School student is in the hospital this morning after being hit by a car, but he is expected to be OK.
According to deputies, Andrew Owens was crossing Parsons Avenue just north of Clay Avenue when he was hit by a Honda Accord. Owens, 15, was taken to Tampa General Hospital in stable condition.
The accident, ironically, happened on National Walk-Ride to School Day, which is meant to promote fitness while also making kids more aware of directions, street signs, traffic patterns, and good pedestrian behavior.
There's no word yet on any charges for the 17-year-old driver.
