A Nunavik man accused of attempted murder following an alleged vehicle attack was denied bail during a July 31 hearing.

On June 26, Kevin Crow, 28, is accused of driving an SUV into two women on an all-terrain vehicle in Umiujaq.

In addition to attempted murder, Crow faces charges of assault, assault with a weapon, aggravated assault, dangerous driving, impaired driving, and causing a vehicle accident resulting in bodily harm, all related to the June 26 attack.

A Quebec court judge denied Crow bail on July 31, noting the violent nature of the incident and the risk of re-offence, said Crown prosecutor Carmen Aubé.

Crow remains in custody in the Amos detention centre.

Both women struck in the incident were severely injured and had to be medevaced to a Montreal hospital to undergo surgery.

One of the women had her right foot amputated. She remains in a Montreal rehabilitation centre.

Crow is scheduled to appear in court again on Aug. 18.

    We should be thankful today that theses types of crimes are not taken lightly. In the past, these behaviours went unpunished, and our community paid dearly. Let this be a warning to those who think they can drink, be jealous, and try to hurt or kill, you are going to jail, hopefully for many long long years.
