A pedestrian who was badly hurt after being hit by a car is said to be recovering.
The 36-year-old man from Workington was said to be in a critical condition following the accident on Saturday night.
Police issued an appeal for witnesses and said the victim had suffered serious head injuries.
But the man’s wife said the damage was not as bad as first feared and confirmed he did not suffer any serious head injuries.
She said: “There was no bleeding to his head and scans confirmed there were no internal injuries.
“He is still in hospital though and has a few broken bones and some breathing difficulties.
“There is some bruising around his lungs and he has a fractured shoulder and four broken ribs. He also suffered a nasty deep cut just behind his left knee, which had to be stitched, but he is in good spirits otherwise.”
The incident happened near Chasers Bar, in Washington Street, Workington, at the junction with Upper Jane Street at around 10.40pm on Saturday.
Police say a blue Ford Fiesta driven by an 18-year-old local man was travelling south towards Kwik Fit, when it was in collision with the pedestrian.
