Ethan mowed down in Emmerdale

The Miligans and Dingles have been less than pleased that Ethan has been walking around the village while Nicky lies in a coma in hospital.

Ethan was driving when he crashed the car carrying him and Nicky. But because he was slightly over the limit, Ethan didn’t want to jeopardise his new job, so fled the seen leaving Moira, who was passing, to tend to Nicky.

Nicky has since been in a coma after suffering a bleed on the brain, while Ethan at first pretended he hadn’t been involved. But after confessing to his dad, Charles reported him to the police and Ethan was arrested. The cops also have dashcam footage proving Ethan was driving, which makes the case pretty clear cut.

Despite Ethan facing an almost-certain stretch in prison, it wasn’t enough for Ruby, who is desperate for her son to wake up. She decided to take matters into her own hands and knocked Ethan down while he was out on his morning run on Wednesday May 22.

Although Ethan claimed he was okay and he didn’t see who was driving, it was was clear he did know.

Ruby confronts Ethan

Later, Ruby was waiting in the shadows of Ethan’s kitchen to make it clear she had been driving the car. Ethan told her he knew and had seen her. He added that they were now even

She retaliated that she didn’t care and that with Nicky still in a coma, there was no way they were even.

Ruby then told him: “You better look both ways every time you cross the street, because if Nicky doesn’t make it, be assured I will finish the job.”

She left Ethan shaking in fear and upset as he contemplated what she said.
