The Defendant had driven his car into a crowd of young adults on the pavement outside a takeaway in Oswestry. The Crown’s case was that he had done so deliberately in an effort to seriously injure someone in the group. He hit and killed a young woman. She sustained catastrophic internal injuries, due to being dragged under the car as it proceeded through the group and on up the street.
