THE sister of a girl who died outside a Huddersfield nightclub relived the final moments of the tragedy.
Tonya Potter-Connolly told a court said she did not know what had happened to her sister as she was knocked down and dragged by a speeding car in a nightclub car park.
Witness Tonya, who had been on a night out with her sister and friend Donna Smith, said for the first few seconds after the incident outside the Visage nightclub in Folly Hill shortly after 2am on September 11 last year she believed she had lost sister Jolene.
Under cross-examination at Leeds Crown Court from defending barrister Robert Smith QC, Tonya said she did not realise what had happened to her sister when the car had reversed.
Mr Smith said: "After the car had driven away you realised your sister had disappeared?"
Tonya replied: "Yes."
Reveller Martin Adams said he disarmed Eton Brewins after spotting him wielding a metal baton in a confrontation with one of his friends.
The chemical process technician said: "I said to him there's no point in fighting with the baton because someone will get hurt. If you are going to fight someone you are better doing it fist to fist."
Mr Adams said he wrestled the baton from Brewins' grip and put him on the floor, from where Brewins got up and went to his car.
Mr Adams said he went to the car to tell Brewins to leave because he didn't want any trouble.
He added: "The car set off in reverse. The car wheels must have been locked at an angle because the car spun out. It knocked me down, the young lady and the other person next to me."
Mr Adams went on to say it was an open passenger side door which floored him.
He added: "It was just stood still and he put the foot full to the floor. It knocked me for six."
Mr Adams, who had been walking home across the car park, said while he was on the floor he had looked up.
He added: "I looked and all I could see was someone underneath the car. A young lady was underneath the car."
Mr Adams said he tried to cut the car off and hurled the metal baton in his hand at the vehicle, smashing the windscreen, but the driver kept on going.
Under cross-examination Mr Smith said it was Mr Adams who had got himself involved in an earlier argument.
He said: "I suggest that you poked your nose into the incident and you were the man who was threatening people and sorting people out and matters of that sort."
Mr Adams denied this.
Mr Smith said Jolene Potter-Connolly had been trying to stop Adams attacking someone in the car through the passenger door and trying to haul him out before it sped off, which Mr Adams also denied.
The trial continues.
