Bail hearing delayed again in fatal crash

It will be another week before the man accused of driving the car that killed a 15-year-old Dartmouth boy will find out if he gets bail.

Matthew Lesley Grimm was scheduled to have a bail hearing at Dartmouth provincial court yesterday afternoon, but the matter was held over until June 2.

This is the second time since being charged that the matter of bail has been put over for the 18-year-old Grimm, who was remanded to the Burnside jail.

Grimm, who is from Cole Harbour, is facing several charges in relation to the death of Dartmouth’s David Alexander Julien, a 15-year-old Prince Andrew High School student who was in the back seat of a white Honda Accord when it crashed into a pole on Cranberry Crescent in Dartmouth on May 16.

Grimm is charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, two counts of breach of an undertaking, one count of breach of probation and one count of failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

Witnesses say the driver and another passenger took off on foot after the accident.

The other passenger, Thomas Glen Dixon, 18, is charged with breaching a court order and is out on bail. Dixon, who is also from Cole Harbour, is back in court on June 18.
