Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision in Middlesbrough involving a cyclist and a Nissan Juke.
The collision happened at around 6am on Wednesday on the A172 Stokesley Road at the junction with Gainsborough Road in Marton.
The 61-year-old male cyclist was taken to James Cook University Hospital following the collision with the white Nissan Juke.
He suffered a fractured spine and remains in hospital whilst receiving treatment.
Any witnesses are asked to contact PC Mark Pearson from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit on the non-emergency number 101.
A teenager has been charged with a string of offences following a low-speed police chase involving a tractor.
Owen Collinson will appear in court to face charges of drink driving, driving while disqualified, driving with no insurance and failing to stop for police.
The 19-year-old is linked to an incident that saw police respond to reports of a stolen tractor from the Skelton area on April 19th this year.
Officers from Cleveland Police traced the vehicle to the Coast Road in Redcar, where they then pursued it at low speed.
Collinson, of Brotton Road in Carlin How, was eventually arrested at the scene and is due to appear at Teesside Magistrates Court on May 17th.
Marske United are only one point away from clinching the Ebac Northern League Division One title after another thrilling match last night.
Ahead of last night's game at Mount Pleasant against North Shields, the Seasiders needed only 4 points from 4 games to win the Northern League title.
First half goals from Peter Bulmer and Mikey Roberts put Marske two goals up at half time, and a third from James Fairley in the second half sealed the deal on a 3-0 victory.
The result means that Marske United are now 3 points clear at the top of the Northern League table, with only one more point required to secure the league title.
