Prominent market analyst Guy Hallwright has been found guilty of recklessly causing a serious injury during a road rage incident.
Hallwright, an analyst for the investment banking company Forsyth Barr, was charged after allegedly running down Sung Jin Kim outside a bar on Mt Eden Road on September 8, 2010.
Mr Kim suffered two broken legs and a shattered left ankle which required reconstructive surgery, and still has difficulty walking.
A jury on Friday found Hallwright guilty of the charge of causing grievous bodily harm with reckless disregard following a week-long trial at Auckland District Court, APNZ reported.
A more serious charge of causing grievous bodily harm with intent to injure had been thrown out by Judge Raoul Neave earlier in the trial.
The incident happened after there had been an angry exchange between Hallwright and Mr Kim at a set of lights at the intersection of Symonds St and Mt Eden Road.
Hallwright said he drove away while Mr Kim was outside his car because he was concerned about the safety of his daughter, who was in the car, but prosecutors said Hallwright must have seen Mr Kim and he did not need to drive off when he did.
