THE trial of a Chester man who denies inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent following an alleged hit-and-run incident in Buckley on March 16 this year has been delayed.
Damien Michael Smith, 35, was due to go on trial at Mold Crown Court last week but there was insufficient court time.
On Friday, Judge Niclas Parry rebailed him pending a new trial date in December.
Smith has pleaded not guilty to GBH with intent, and an alternative GBH charge, on his partner's brother, Lee Darren Stanley, 39.
It follows allegations that Mr Stanley was struck by a Ford Mondeo car, ended up on the windscreen and was thrown on to the rear windscreen of a parked Corsa car before falling onto the road at Jubilee Road in Buckley.
Smith, of Durham Road in Blacon, is bailed on condition that he lives at his home address.
He is also banned from entering North Wales, apart from attending court.
Mr Stanley was taken to hospital with a large laceration to his head with needed 18 stitches, eight rib fractures, a bruised lung, and a broken vertebrae in his neck.
