Ottawa Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth: Drunk Driving Ottawa accident Carling Avenue: Cyclist Nathan Anderson dies in Ottawa Hospital
Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth, www.ottawainjury.ca Regrettably I have terrible news to share with you. Sadly, Nathan Anderson died today in an Ottawa hospital. What a very tragic death. My thoughts go out to his grieving family and friends….
original post: Unfortunately I do not have better news to share at this time. Nathan Anderson remains comatose and in critical condition in an Ottawa hospital. The man who hit him got out of jail today after a bail hearing in Ottawa court. Glen Carkner was released on a $32,000 bond and ordered to abstain from alcohol and drugs. He was also forbidden to drive a car. Glen Carkner has been in jail since the February 1 tragic accident that left cyclist Nathan Anderson in an Ottawa hospital with a critical head injury.
Ottawa cyclist Nathan Anderson was seriously injured yesterday afternoon when he was hit by what was reported as a drunk driver (charges have been laid ) on Carling Avenue . The terrible Ottawa accident has left him with critical injuries and possibly a brain injury, in an Ottawa hospital. Glen Carkner was charged with impaired driving and dangerous driving causing bodily harm in connection with the Ottawa accident. The cyclist, is a 31-year-old man, and it was rteported that he suffered critical head injuries. Nathan Anderson, remains in an hospital in critical but thankfully stable condition. My thoughts go out to his friends and family of Nathan Anderson…He will have a long and difficult road ahead of him and will need a lot of support.
Carkner was arrested at the Ottawa accident scene by Ottawa police. Minutes earlier staff at the Hampton Park Plaza LCBO had seen him staggering into the LCBO, crashing into several signs and a guard rai. Trained LCBO staff refused to sell Carkner alcohol and called Ottawa police. Shortly there after, Carkner’s car struck the Ottawa cyclist just a few blocks away on Carling Avenue near Archibald Street.
There are far too many accidents in Ottawa that are the result of impaired driving. It needs to stop. Yes, accident victims will be entitled to injury compensation and claims benefits for personal injuries , but these accidents change their lives and the lives of their families forever.
What a terrible, avoidable accident …
