Court hears latest from Shipley attempted murder trial

A MAN who was hit by a car and then stabbed repeatedly looked “frightened to death” moments beforehand, a court heard.
Scott Hacking was seriously injured by the vehicle and knifed in the chest and legs.
Richard Emblow, 46, of Bradford Road, Bingley, denies attempting to murder Mr Hacking in Kirkgate, Shipley, on the afternoon of Saturday, July 23 last year.
The jury at Bradford Crown Court has been told that he has pleaded guilty to wounding Mr Hacking with intent to cause him grievous bodily harm and possession of a lock knife in Shipley town centre.


Yesterday, prosecutor Patrick Palmer read a statement to the court in which a witness told how they had seen Mr Hacking moments before the collision, when he ran from the direction of a garden area.
Reading from the statement, Mr Palmer said: “He looked frightened to death. He paid no attention to vehicles in the road. He ran straight out into the road.”
The witness said a black car was forced to brake sharply, before Mr Hacking returned to the garden area.
Again reading from the statement, Mr Palmer said: “I saw him walk back to the garden area. Within 30 seconds I heard a loud bang.
“I saw the male had been hit by a silver vehicle.”
Witness Brett Selby told the court that he used his hands and then his elbow to stem the flow of blood from an artery.
Mr Palmer asked him how he stemmed the blood flow, and Mr Selby said: “Initially with my hands, then I ended up with my elbow over his artery.”
Mr Selby said he had seen a puncture wound on the victim’s chest when his shirt was lifted up.
The court was told that, prior to the incident, Mr Selby had heard a group of men having an argument.
