At the High Court in Glasgow, a jury heard that you could hear a women’s bones cracking as a car ran over her after she was knocked down and lay in the road.
The evidence came on the third day of the trial.
32 year old Terri Sinclair is charged with attempting to murder Charmaine Currie by driving at her and then repeatedly driving over her to her severe injury, permanent impairment and disfigurement.
Miss Sinclair is also charged with behaving in an abusive and threatening manner including a sending threatening messages including a video.
Caitlan Currie told the court her girlfriend Charmaine was hit by a car driven at her by Terrie Sinclair, in February 2021.
Ms Currie said she had been in relationship with Terri Sinclair before she started dating Charmaine.
Ms Currie told the court, Charmaine bounced across the road after being hit by the red Ford Fiesta, and was under the car.
She said she thought when Ms Sinclair drove away, the wheels possibly went over Charmaine as they would have had to, as Charmaine was under the car.
Prosecutor Lindsey Dalziel read out to the court part of the statement Ms Currie had given to the police that night.
In the statement, Ms Currie, had told police while Charmaine was lying in the road, Ms Sinclair reversed over her and drove over the top of Charmaine again, and Ms Currie could hear Charmaine’s bones breaking every time.
Under cross examination for the defence, KC Victoria Dow put it to Ms Currie that what she had said in court was quite different to what was in her police statement.
Caitlan Currie said that she didn’t know how many times Terri Sinclair had run over Charmaine, “It’s all a blur” she said.
The jury also heard evidence from Kieran Paterson who had arrived back at the street in the city’s Germiston area that night with his then partner.
The court heard he had seen the Ford Fiesta mount the kerb, knock the person over and saw her dragged for 6 feet under the car.
He told police that he believed the driver deliberately ran over Charmaine and made sure that the back wheels went over her too.
KC Victoria Dow put to Mr. Paterson that although he had said that to the police, he didn’t describe the red car as accelerating at the women or reversing over her. She asked him if it could have been accidental.
“I don’t know,” he replied.
Terri Sinclair denies all charges against her. The trial continues at the High Court in Glasgow.
