Stowmarket: Man accused of driving car at pedestrian

A SUFFOLK motorist mounted a grass verge and deliberately drove his car at his daughter’s ex-boyfriend after a family row, it has been alleged.

Tony Brame allegedly ended up wedged under one of the car wheels, Ipswich Crown Court was told.

In hospital he was found to have facial injuries, a leg injury, and grazes, said Patricia Doggett, prosecuting.

Stephen Landymore, 49, of Thomas Young Close, Stowmarket, has denied dangerous driving on September 5 last year.

The court heard Mr Brame had formerly been in a relationship with one of Landymore’s daughters and they had two children.

Mr Brame alleged Chloe’s boyfriend had then thrown him to the ground.

As he walked away Landymore had allegedly driven on to the grass verge in Poplar Hill and knocked him over.

Mr Brame denied he had stumbled into the path of the car because he was drunk.

The trial continues today.
