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.
