TAMPA (FOX 13) -
A brother and sister suffered apparently minor injuries after being hit by a car along Bearss Avenue this afternoon, the last day of school.
According to the sheriff's office, a group of around 30 students from Buchanan Middle School was walking down the sidewalk when several students decided to run across the street near Monet Drive -- not in a crosswalk.
Most of the students made it across except for two of the students, a 12-year-old boy and his 14-year-old sister, who were the last two to run across.
They were struck by an oncoming Honda Civic.
Deputies say the injuries do not appear to be life-threatening, but both were taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in stable condition.
The 19-year-old driver of the Civic, meanwhile, was cited for driving with a suspended license.
