Students at South Cobb High School mourned the loss of one of their own Wednesday. Sixteen-year-old Isaiah Dean died from injuries he received from a car that hit him outside the high school Tuesday morning.

Police said Dean was hit around 9:15 a.m. on Austell Road. According to investigators, the victim stepped into the path of a 2000 Plymouth Neon while attempting to cross the road. 

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital. He passed away early Wednesday morning as a result of his injuries. 

The driver of the vehicle has been identified as 60-year-old Bruce Guercio, of Acworth. Investigators do not expect to file charges.
