Dennis Lee, from Carlisle, has been charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent to cause serious injury and driving dangerously causing serious injury.

He is due to appear before magistrates in Carlisle tomorrow morning.

Detectives and collision investigators are today continuing to investigate the incident on Chertsey Mount, off London Road, on Friday lunchtime.

A 30-year-old was airlifted to Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary after being hit by a car.

He was hurt at lunchtime on Friday and the road remained closed – at least partially – for about four hours as a probe into what happened was launched.

Collision investigators were sent to the scene to examine the area and looking at potential evidence.

People watched as an air ambulance landed close to the scene before taking the man to hospital.

His injuries are described as being “serious” but not life-threatening. 

No exact details about what they are – or where the man is from – have been released.

He is said to be in a serious but stable condition at the hospital.

Police say the injured man was involved in a collision with a car on Chertsey Mount at about noon.

That vehicle – a Fiat Seicento – was driven by a man from Carlisle. He was not hurt.

Drivers were asked to avoid the London Road area as it was shut off for paramedics to perform early treatment on the man, for the helicopter to land, and while the probe into what happened got underway.

The road was closed off from the Halfords exit of the St Nicholas Gate retail park to its Alexandra Street junction.

It was reopened partially just before 3pm, but not fully until about an hour later.

Police thanked motorists for their patience and for avoiding the area.

Any witnesses are asked to contact Carlisle police on 101.
