Colt Levi Morin, accused of driving a car into a group of children on Big River First Nation, has been denied bail.

The judge gave his decision Tuesday morning at Prince Albert’s provincial courthouse. Morin will be remanded into custody until his next court date, May 15.

An accident on April 9 injured at least three children, including one who sustained a brain injury. The vehicle left the scene, but further investigation led police to Morin. He was arrested on April 12 on impaired driving and criminal negligence charges.

In Morin’s bail hearing last week, Crown prosecutor Gail Douglas argued that he represents a continuing danger to the community. In addition to suspicions that he was driving drunk at the time of the accident, Morin is facing separate charges for two alleged domestic assaults and an alleged home invasion.
