Police are appealing for the publics help after two teenagers suffered injuries in traffic incident in Middlesbrough.
Officers are appealing for any witnesses - and for the driver to come forward - after the incident in the Sledmere Drive and Tollesby Road area of the town.
The 14-year-olds were walking down Tollesby Road at around 2.30pm on Thursday afternoon and reached the junction of Sledmere Drive.
As they were attempting to cross the road and walk towards Green Lane, a vehicle turned into Sledmere from Tollesby and collided with them.
The teenagers both suffered what are believed to be minor injuries and one was checked over at hospital.
The driver stopped at the scene and she checked the teenagers and apologised, but then left without passing any details.
Any witnesses are asked to contact Cleveland Police via the non emergency 101 number.
Two drivers have been arrested on suspicion of drug driving as part of a police operation to tackle serious and organised crime.
As part of Operation Endeavour, officers from the Road Policing Unit stopped a Vauxhall vehicle in the Coulby Newham area which was reportedly sighted driving at speed on Saturday.
The female driver aged 31 was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs and has been released pending enquiries.
A Volkswagen vehicle was also stopped on the same day on Grassington Road in Middlesbrough and the male driver aged 32 was arrested on suspicion of drug driving and has been released pending enquiries.
Parents and guardians have been advised that children must be kept in isolation following Covid detection at Whale Hill Primary School in Eston.
Some children and teachers at the school have had to be sent home after Covid-19 was detected in a number of staff.
The school remains open as normal for nursery, reception and most of the Year 5 children.
However, many of the children in the other year groups must now isolate for ten days as a legal requirement after Covid testing showed some positive results.
That means the children have to stay at home for the full ten days.
