Charges laid in car theft and crash

Alberta man arrested immediately following incident on Sept. 14 in Abbotsford

Charges have now been laid in relation to a car theft and crash on Sept. 14.

An Alberta man who allegedly stole a car from an Abbotsford gas station and then immediately crashed into another vehicle on Sept. 14 has been charged.

Julian Conrad Morris, 26, has been charged with dangerous driving causing bodily harm and theft of a motor vehicle.

He has been in custody since his arrest that day.

The incident began at about 2:30 a.m. at the Shell gas station at McCallum and Marshall roads.

Police at the time said a woman had left her vehicle running as she went to pay for her gas.

A man then jumped into the car and drove off, immediately crashing into an SUV as he entered the intersection.

Both vehicles then crashed into a retaining wall at the business across the street, and both drivers were taken to hospital for the treatment of relatively minor injuries.
