Bradley Jesse Larson
Birth: Nov. 4, 1983
Houston
Harris County
Texas, USA
Death: Apr. 26, 2006
Marion
Grant County
Indiana, USA

Bradley Larson was killed on I-69 in Grant County, Indiana in a car/truck accident. He was among a group of students and employees from Taylor University traveling back to campus in a van that was hit by a tractor-trailer about 10 miles north of campus. Taylor is a small evangelical Christian school of 1,900 students in Upland, Ind., northeast of Indianapolis.

Authorities said the truck crashed through the median about 8 p.m. and slammed into the van. The impact peeled up the side of the van and threw passengers from the vehicle.

Three other students and a university employee also were killed.

Bradley, a senior from Elm Grove, Wis., was getting ready to graduate and attend law school next year at the University of Wisconsin.

He also loved music and was a big fan of basketball and ping pong, and he enjoyed his friends. Above all, Bradley had a deep love for God.

The other victims killed in the accident were Laurel Erb, Elizabeth Smith, Laura J. VanRyn, and Monica Felver.

Bradley was one of the victims in the horrific accident that made world news when it was discovered that the county coroner had mistaken the identities of Laura VanRyn and Whitney Cerak, a Michigan woman also attending Taylor University and who was also involved in the accident. Whitney had survived the crash but was initally reported deceased and buried in Fairview Cemetery, in Gaylord, Michigan. It was later determind when family members became suspicious and dental records were compared that Whitney Cerak was alive and being cared for in a Grand Rapids, Michigan Hopsital and it was in fact, Laura VanRyn buried in Cerak's grave.

Such a nice looking young man with his entire life before him. Such a shame, but I know he is in Heaven where there is no pain. My deepest sympathies for his parents and friends, I'm sure he had many. Rest well, Brad.
