Cyclist succumbs to injuries after being hit by car
A cyclist has died after being critically injured in a collision with a car earlier this month.
Nathan Anderson, 31, died in hospital Sunday, almost three weeks after he was struck near the intersection of Carling Avenue and Kirkwood Avenue.
The impact of the Feb. 2 collision threw Anderson off his bicycle. He was wearing a helmet, but still sustained severe head injuries.
A 44-year-old Ottawa man was later charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle and dangerous driving causing bodily harm, along with several other criminal counts following the crash.
Ottawa police say the charges will be upgraded as a result of Anderson’s death.
