Police are asking for the publics help after man was injured by passing vehicle in East Cleveland.
The 20 year old man's arm was broken in three places after he was struck by a passing vehicle on Friday morning.
At around 7.15am the man was walking in a southerly direction facing oncoming traffic on Stanghow Road close to the allotments, when a vehicle, believed to be a van, which was travelling north towards New Marske clipped him with its wing mirror.
The victim received treatment at James Cook University Hospital and he may require surgery.

Police are appealing for information after a report of a suspicious incident in Middlesbrough.
Officers received a report of a male driver behaving suspiciously in a parked dark vehicle, believed to be like a Transit van, on Clairville common on Park Vale Road around 10:15pm on Sunday.
The vehicle is believed to have had writing along the side.
It was then driven away along Valley Road.
Anyone who may have witnessed anyone behaving suspiciously or anyone who may have further information regarding the driver or the vehicle, is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
A local MP has called for a Redcar extension to the LNER Middlesbrough to London service which was launched on Monday.
Jacob Young, MP for Redcar, was among the first passengers to be able to make use of the new daily direct service from Middlesbrough to London Kings Cross.
And while Mr Young was all too happy to praise the launch of the service, he was also quick to push for more.
Mr Young said that there should now be a drive to get the number of daily services increased, and after that to extend the service to Redcar Central.
Mr Young also said that he is confident that the service will go from success to success and that the case for a Redcar connection will become more and more apparent in the coming weeks and months.
