CAPE CORAL, Fla.- The Lee County Sheriff's deputy involved in a crash last week that killed a high school student is on administrative leave.
Corporal Douglas Hood was driving along Kismet Pkwy. Friday morning when he hit 15-year-old Austin Dukette.
Dukette was riding his bike to school.
The Sheriff's office tells WINK News placing Corporal Hood on leave is a standard procedure, not a punishment.
Cape Coral Police are investigating the crash and WINK News is still waiting for the crash report to learn more about what happened.
