A man’s been charged in connection with a hit-and-run that left a man hospitalised in Londonderry last year.

The 19-year-old was charged with a series of offences following the incident in the early hours of Sunday, November 9, at Abercorn Road when a male pedestrian was taken to hospital with leg and head injuries after being struck by a car.

Detective Sergeant Brian Reid said: “Two men aged 18 and 19 were arrested after the incident. The 19 year old was today charged with dangerous driving causing Grievous Bodily Harm, careless driving and other motoring offences. He will appear at Londonderry Magistrates Court on 16 March.”

The 18 year old remains on police bail.
