Update On Brock Prime As Assault Accused Bail Delayed
A bail application for one man accused of the violent rage road attack on the Gold Coast has again been delayed as the court heard victim Brock Prime might die from his injuries.
The 29-year-old tradie is understood to have suffered a fractured scull and a broken leg in the assault, which occurred on the M1 motorway, near Yatala, on Saturday night.
He was allegedly attacked by a group of up to 13 men, with either a tyre iron or a crowbar.
They were travelling in a white van which had engaged in a "cat and mouse" style chase along the motorway with Mr Prime.
Doctors have informed Mr Prime's family that his brain had been infected by dirt that had entered his head wound.
Heartbreaking news, Prosecutor tells court Brock Prime 'may die, though he is stable currently' and 'extent of his injuries may not be known for days or weeks.' @9NewsQueensland— Clare Hunter (@clarephunter9) March 2, 2018
Ryan Hallifax, charged with grievous bodily harm over the incident, on Tuesday had his application for bail adjourned to Friday given Mr Prime's chances of recovery were still unknown.
Representing Mr Hallifax in Beenleigh Magistrates Court on Friday, lawyer David Gilmore was granted permission to adjourn the matter until Monday.
The court heard Mr Prime was in a critical but stable condition and "may die" from the injuries.
Co-accused Jordan Baklas, 27, who also had his matter adjourned until Friday, is yet to appear at the Beenleigh court.
A third man charged over the offence, Jonathan Lawrence, 26, has been remanded in custody with his matter adjourned until May 2.
Lawrence's arrest came just over a year after a man was sentenced to a minimum of six-and-a-half years imprisonment for the murder of his three-year-old daughter in Victoria in 2015.
