Driver in crash that injured Morgan Pardy back in jail

C.B.S. man allegedly breached conditions not to contact Pardy and others


The Conception Bay South driver charged after a singlecar crash that left his female passenger partially paralyzed is back in custody with six new charges.

Joshua Steele-young was in provincial court in St. John’s Friday morning, where he was charged with three counts of breaching conditions not to contact the passenger, Morgan Pardy, or two other women. He was also charged with three counts of breaching a condition to keep the peace and be of good behaviour.

Steele-young is alleged to have violated the no-contact order on June 24, June 25 and July 16. He’ll be back in court Monday morning for a bail hearing.

The 21-year-old is awaiting an August court date on charges of dangerous driving causing bodily harm and forcible confinemen­t in connection with the crash that seriously injured Pardy on Pitts Memorial Drive just outside St. John’s on a snowy morning last March. He was reportedly behind the wheel of a Honda Civic that rolled over several times in the westbound lane, resulting in Pardy being ejected from the car. Pardy, also 21, is paralyzed from the waist down because of the crash.

Steele-young was reportedly also injured and spent a night in hospital.
