A judge just overruled the name suppression.

Police say the two got into an altercation after pulling the finger at each other. Hallwright got out of his car and approached Mr Kim, then when he went back to his car, Mr Kim followed.
It is alleged Hallwright then ran him down, drove away and handed himself in to police a short time later.

The victim was was left lying in the middle of the road with two broken legs, and is still in hospital even two and half months later. He had to have multiple operations and will probably undergo more.
