Ruling Made In Crash That Killed Longtime Dentist

Posted by wlpo on March 30, 2012

An elderly man from Earlville has been found guilty of causing a crash that killed a retired Ottawa dentist.

75-year old Everett Olmstead was ordered to pay a thousand dollars in fine and court costs in the death of John Harbeck of Ottawa.  Olmstead was found guilty of improper passing.

Harbeck was out riding his bicycle with three other men last October north of Ottawa when he was hit by a grain truck driven by Olmstead.  The longtime dentist died at the scene.

His widow is suing Olmstead in civil court.
