First court appearanceover Snugborough incident
A Douglas woman accused of running over her estranged husband has made a first court appearance before magistrates.
Thirty-nine-year-old Susan Janet Moore, of Albany Road, is charged with causing serious bodily harm by driving without consideration and failing to stop following a road traffic accident.
Mike Jelski, prosecuting, told the court CCTV showed Mrs Moore driving towards her husband near Outdoor Power and Plant on the Snugborough Trading Estate lastb Tuesday afternoon.
He said the footage showed the white Ford Transit van didn't brake or change course before hitting the man.
Mr Jelski said he remains in a coma in Noble's hospital and police hadn't been able to speak to him.
Mrs Moore's advocate, Dawn Jones, said the video showed Mr Moore stepping in front of the vehicle and Mrs Moore hadn't seen him until the last second.
Mrs Jones added there was no suggestion the vehicle was going at excessive speed.
She said there was a 'lot of history' between the two, and her client left the scene because she had feared for her life.
The case has been adjourned until July 21, and Mrs Moore has been bailed, on the condition she does not contact Mr Moore.
