VANCOUVER, Wash. — A jury has found that a 32-year-old man did not intend to kill a man when he ran him over with his truck following an argument in Vancouver, Washington.
The Columbian reports (https://goo.gl/hhygVV ) that although jurors on Friday acquitted Brandon Gorham of attempted murder, they convicted him of assault and hit-and-run resulting in injury.
During his trial, the prosecution and defense were at odds over whether Gorham intended to run down then-27-year-old Zachery Lucore with a pickup in September 2016, near Tennessee Lane and North Garrison Road.
Lucore suffered fractures to his pelvis, face, ribs and spine, a collapsed lung and abrasions.
Shortly before the crash, prosecutors say the two men — who were strangers — had been in a verbal altercation outside Gorham’s residence.
Gorham will be sentenced Sept. 14.
