Man charged in crash that par­a­lyzed Mor­gan Pardy will go to trial

The Telegram (St. John’s) - - PROVINCIAL -

A man charged with a car crash last spring that left his pas­sen­ger par­a­lyzed will go to trial in Jan­uary.

Joshua Steele-young’s case was called in pro­vin­cial court in St. John’s Fri­day morn­ing. He faces charges of dan­ger­ous driv­ing caus­ing bod­ily harm, forcible con­fine­ment and breach­ing court or­ders.

His trial will start Jan. 15. Steele-young, 21, was al­legedly driv­ing in snowy con­di­tions March 20 when the car rolled over mul­ti­ple times on Pitts Me­mo­rial Drive. His pas­sen­ger, Mor­gan Pardy, 22, was ejected from the ve­hi­cle and is par­a­lyzed from the waist down as a re­sult.

Steele-young was charged in June and re­leased to await a court ap­pear­ance. He was ar­rested in July for al­legedly break­ing a court or­der to have no con­tact with Pardy.

He was re­leased again on bail with a num­ber of strict con­di­tions, in­clud­ing that he sur­ren­der his driver’s li­cence, that he have a cur­few, that he not have a cell­phone or tablet, and that the in­ter­net ser­vice at his par­ents’ home, where he lives, is dis­con­nected.
