MARQUETTE — A Gwinn man accused of seriously injuring a woman in a one–car accident has been bound over to circuit court.

Thirty–one year old Dave Nykanen waived his preliminary exam in Marquette County District Court. Back on April 5th, Forsyth Township Police arrested Nykanen on a four–count warrant for an incident that took place last July.

The vehicle Nykanen was driving crashed on M–35, seriously injuring a woman riding in his car. Nykanen is charged with operating while intoxicated, third offense, which is a five–year felony.

His circuit court arraignment has not yet been scheduled.
