A funeral service was held Tuesday for a suburban high school cross country runner who was killed when he was hit by a car during practice.

Fourteen-year-old Patrick Mizwicki attended Lincoln-Way East High School. Family, his teammates and other students attended the service in Frankfort.

Mizwicki died last Thursday while training with his cross country team along a horse trail in unincorporated Palos Township.

Police say the driver of the car that struck Mizwicki was not speeding but did receive minor traffic citations.
