A man has been charged with driving offences following a serious collision in Stenson Fields at the weekend.
We were called to reports of a collision involving a car and a pedestrian on Beaufort Road, at the junction with Wragley Way, just before 5pm on Saturday 15 July.
The pedestrian, a man aged in his 70s, was taken to hospital with serious injuries, where he remains in a critical condition.
Lee Falivena, of Church Street, Church Gresley, appeared at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates Court today (Monday 17 July) charged with causing serious injury by dangerous driving, failing to stop after a road accident, driving without insurance and possession of Class B.
The 40-year-old was remanded into prison custody pending future court hearings.
Officers would still like to hear from any witnesses or anyone with information who hasn’t yet spoken to us.
We would also appeal for anyone with any dashcam footage or CCTV from the area in the moments leading up to the collision.
