Villager hit by motorist.
Karl Leck of Newburn Road, Newcastle, was at the home of girlfriend Sarah Patterson in Grange Villa, near Chester-le-Street, County Durham last year when things turned "unpleasant."
Leck, 24, decided to leave and as he sped away down a narrow back lane, he knocked Brian McDermott over. Mr McDermott sustained a fractured pelvis, Durham Crown Court was told.
Leck admitted dangerous driving, wounding and failing to stop after an accident. He was jailed for 12 months, suspended for two years.
