The trial of four men accused of conspiracy to commit murder and attempted murder has been put back and will now happen next year.
John Kiely, Michael Mongan, Gerry McDonagh and Simon McDonagh had been due to stand trial in November in connection with an incident in Ryton in October 2018.
However, following a hearing at Warwick Crown Court today (September 29), the trial date was instead fixed for April 6, 2021.
Two men suffered neck injuries in the aftermath of a crash involving a number of vehicles on the A445 Leamington Road, in Ryton, on the morning of October 16, 2018.
Two of the vehicles involved – including a white Audi – left the scene and were then involved in two further collisions on the A423 and at the roundabout where the two roads meet, near to the Sports Connexion.
Armed police and paramedics were called to the scene, while officers were also seen in nearby Bubbenhall.
Warwickshire Police went on to charge four men arrested by the force.
The men are: John Kiely, 40, of Darlingscote Road, Shipston-on-Stour; Michael Mongan, 25, of Cricketfield Road, West Drayton, London; Gerry McDonagh, 25, of Burnhill Close, London; and Simon McDonagh, 35, of West Drayton, London.
They have each been charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit murder and two counts of attempted murder.
They are yet to enter any pleas.
