TRURO - An Economy man will remain behind bars until late October after requesting an adjournment of his show cause hearing.
Ryan Harvey McLellan, 26, has been charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, refusing the breathalyzer, impaired driving, dangerous driving, flight from police, and two counts of failing to comply with an undertaking.
He was arrested early Friday morning after Truro Police Service officers tried to stop him for a vehicle infraction and he refused to pull over, instead fleeing from police in the vehicle.
When the vehicle was spotted a short time later, the driver left the vehicle and fled on foot before being caught by police.
He will return for a show cause hearing on Oct. 23 at 9:30 a.m., which is the same time he's to appear for sentencing for a New Year's Day hit and run.
McLellan pleaded guilty last month to one count each of criminal negligence causing bodily harm and leaving the scene of an accident.
A Bass River woman was left critically injured after being struck by the car as she walked alongside the road from the Economy Community Centre. Holly Grue suffered a traumatic brain injury, broken back, ribs and ankle, a fractured spine and pelvis, and torn ligaments in her left knee. She's still in a wheelchair and may never walk again.
During that investigation, police determined the vehicle that struck her was located in the ditch a short distance away from where she was struck.
Additional charges from that incident - theft of a motor vehicle and impaired driving - are expected to be withdrawn during McLellan's Oct. 23 sentencing hearing.
