CAMBRIDGE, Minn. (WCCO) – The father of a young teenager killed while biking to a friend’s house says he has forgiven the 16-year-old driver that took his son’s life.

Colin Larson died Thursday night just a block from his home in Cambridge.

His family says the 13-year-old was very passionate about his faith. His church canceled a retreat, and Larson’s friends instead met at the church for a memorial.

Larson’s dad, Stephen Larson, told WCCO that through his family’s grief, they’re also thinking of the driver.

“It is our family’s deepest desire and hope as a community, family, church [that] we support this young driver who continues to live with the events that occurred in those brief moments,” Larson said. “And to do that, he will need all our love that we can offer him.”

The 16-year-old driver who hit Larson was allowed to go home after being questioned by police.

Larson will be laid to rest on Tuesday at First Baptist Church in Cambridge.
