Man to face court for hitting his brother with his car

An Upper Coomera man is in hospital, after he was hit by a car driven by his brother during his engagement party on Saturday night.

Police say the 32-year-old man tried to stop his 39-year-old brother from leaving the party following an argument, by standing in front of his car.

It is alleged the driver accelerated, knocking the groom-to-be to the ground, before driving off from the event in Tallai at around 11:30pm.


The victim was taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital with serious internal injuries and fractures to his arm and leg.

His brother will face court Southport Magistrates Court today, charged with one count of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing grievous bodily harm.
