Two men from South Hedland, in the Pilbara, Western Australia are on trial over a hit and run incident involving a teenage boy, which took place two years ago. 

The two men allegedly followed the teenager, who was 14 at the time, on a vacant block in May 2016.

The teenager says the passenger in the car yelled out to him, “I’m going to kill you, you black c**t”.

The two South Hedland men, Robert Peter Butson and Zachary Kane Armstrong, are on trial accused of striking the bike and throwing the teenager to the ground.  

The teenager suffered a broken leg and was left to “crawl, hop and drag himself,” to medical help.

The two men have pleaded not guilty to all charges.  

Prosecutor Anthony Eyres told South Hedland Supreme Court a group of teenagers had been allegedly wandering the streets earlier in the evening of the night the incident occurred. The group ended up outside Mr Armstrong’s house. 

"What the kids were up to you can draw your own inference," Mr Eyres said.

Mr Eyres said Mr Armstrong saw one young girl trying to open his front door and then allegedly chased the group away on foot.

Mr Armstrong and Mr Butson then left Mr Armstrong’s house and drove to Mr Butson’s house which was nearby.  On the way back to Mr Armstrong’s house it’s alleged the two men saw the then 14-year-old victim on a bike and chased him in their car. 

"[It was] unlit, dark and undulating [terrain]," Mr Eyres said. "And [the teenager] pedalled away furiously in a panic." 

The now 16-year-old teenager gave evidence via video link.  Under cross-examination he admitted his memory from that night was limited but he does clearly remember being chased and hit by the car.

"I thought I was going to die," he said.

"I thought they were going to come back and finish me off."

The teenager denies being involved in the events earlier in that evening and said he was unaware of what others in the group were doing.

The trail is expected to continue until next week.
