Dangerous and impaired driving charges have been laid in a near-fatal crash on the south Taylor Hill in October.

Jordan Anthony Ramos was charged Friday with impaired driving and dangerous driving causing bodily harm in the Oct. 5 collision, according to court records.

A first appearance has yet to be scheduled, and Ramos is to appear in court next week to schedule a bail hearing on two new impaired driving charges, from Nov. 8 and 18 in Fort St. John.

The October crash left an American traveler, Eric Wade, seriously injured.

Wade had been driving from Kentucky back home to Kasilof, Alaska, and was airlifted to hospital in Grande Prairie with two broken arms, a broken leg, and a collapsed lung.

His recovery continues in hospital in Anchorage, family says.
