OTTAWA — A cyclist critically injured in a hit-and-run earlier this month has died in hospital.
Nathan Anderson, 31, was riding his bike on Carling Avenue near Archibald Street on Feb. 2 at about 2:30 p.m. when he was struck from behind by a silver Toyota Matrix travelling between 60 and 70 kilometres per hour.
The force of the collision tossed the avid cyclist three metres. He was transported to hospital in critical condition and never regained consciousness.
Anderson died early Sunday morning at The Ottawa Hospital’s Civic campus, a hospital spokeswoman confirmed.
Members of Anderson’s family, who live in southern Ontario, could not be reached for comment. Several family friends also declined to comment out of respect for the family’s wishes.
“They wish people to respect their privacy at this time,” said Ottawa police Const. Greg Rhoden, the investigator assigned to the case.
However, in light of the cyclist’s death, the charges against an Ottawa man are going to be upgraded. Read more…
