Police have continued to appeal for witnesses after a man suffered spinal injuries following an incident in Redcar where a man was in collision with a car.
The incident happened at around 4.30am on Friday outside the Aruba Nightclub.
A black 13 plate BMW collided with the 26-year-old man, who had been assaulted by two men.
The victim was attempting to walk away when the collision occurred.
He suffered spinal injuries and is currently detained at James Cook University Hospital.
Two men aged 22 and 23 have been arrested on suspicion of conspiring to commit grievous bodily harm and both have been released under investigation whilst enquiries continue.
Now detectives are appealing for any drivers in the area who may have dash cam footage of the incident or the BMW vehicle to get in touch.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Constable Andy Paice from Redcar and Cleveland Operational Crime Team on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Three people were taken to hospital after a multi-vehicle crash on a busy main road in Middlesbrough.
Police, fire and ambulance crews attended the scene and the road was closed between the Belle Vue roundabout and Roseberry Park hospital for more than two hours.
Firefighters from three engines worked to free three people trapped after the crash, which happened at around 5.20pm yesterday evening.
They were taken to nearby James Cook University Hospital, while other casualties were reportedly treated at the scene.
The road reopened just before 7.40pm.
