Mark Thompson is seen in provincial court in Corner Brook in this undated file photo.

There is sufficient evidence to proceed with three charges in relation to alleged impaired driving causing bodily harm against Mark Jeffrey Thompson.

Judge Catherine Allen-Westby made the ruling Wednesday following a preliminary inquiry last month in provincial court in Corner Brook.

Thompson faces charges of impaired driving causing bodily harm, impaired operation of a vehicle causing bodily harm by exceeding 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood, and dangerous operation of a vehicle causing bodily harm.

The judge told legal counsel involved in the matter to contact the court to set a date for the matter to be called again.

A female passenger was injured in the April 2013 motor-vehicle crash on the Trans Canada Highway near Little Rapids.

Thompson, 20, is accused of travelling at a high rate of speed at the time.

According to the RCMP at the time, the four-door car rolled several times and had parts scattered across to the westbound lane.

Thompson is facing charges and has convictions related to a number of mischief-related offences in the past couple of years.

He received a suspended sentence for drive-by pellet gun damage to properties in summer 2011.

He is also one of three men facing charges in connection with the alleged spray painting of a police officer’s personal vehicle in his Pasadena driveway.
