“OMAR EICHER BUGGY ACCIDENT UPDATE:” (Forwarded by The North Bay Nugget)

“The driver of a car involved in a collision with a horse and buggy in Powassan three weeks ago has been notified charges will be laid through a court summons, Ontario Provincial Police confirmed Monday. Bob Gray, 71, of Memorial Park Drive in Chisholm Township, was told Sunday by the OPP he will face dangerous driving charges related to a Dec. 15 collision. Gray was driving a 2008 Nissan Altima eastbound on Memorial Park Drive when it collided with an eastbound horse and buggy driven by Omar Eicher, 61, of Chiswick Line. Eicher suffered critical injuries and was transferred by air ambulance to Sudbury from the North Bay and District Hospital. The horse died at the scene. A family member told The Nugget Eicher has since been transferred back to North Bay hospital, although it’s premature to speculate how long he will remain in hospital. “About as well as can be expected,” said his son Norman Eicher, who is visiting from Tennessee. “It’s too early to really go fully into detail . . . everything is still tentative.” Eicher said his father is dealing with a spinal injury as well as crushed legs.”
