Crash News Video: Cambridge, Isanti County, Minnesota: Teen Colin Nathaniel Larson Killed In Bicycle Accident At Hillary Circle And 329th Avenue

In this crash, a car driven by a teenager struck another teen who was riding a bicycle. It is not totally clear at this time who had the right of way. But the CBS report says there was a stop sign at the intersection on Hillary Circle, and that it was the bicyclist who was on Hillary Circle.

To be clear, though, the report does not state exactly where the bike was when it was hit. So we can’t really say if the teen boy on the bicycle was at fault. There just isn’t enough information to make that determination. However, the teen car driver has not been charged with any crimes or received any traffic tickets.
