The head-on collision on Highway 19A just north of Fanny Bay on Sept. 27, 2014, ultimately took the life of 91-year-old Margarete Obermann.
Bishop was allegedly driving a vehicle involved in a head-on collision with a vehicle in which Obermann was the passenger.
According to Obermann’s family, Margarete was in the car with her “best friend” Ruth Hoffman, when they were struck head-on.
Obermann suffered 27 broken bones as a result of the crash, and remained hospitalized until her death, three-and-a-half months later.
