Police are appealing to trace witnesses after a collision on the A171 eastbound near Pinchinthorpe.
The collision involved a yellow Ford Focus which left the carriageway at around 1:25am on Tuesday.
Two males aged 32 and 40 who were travelling in the vehicle were injured and taken to hospital for treatment.
Any witnesses who may have seen the collision or anyone who may have seen the manner of driving of the vehicle prior to it, is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
Three men have been arrested in connection with a serious collision which took place in Middlesbrough last month.
The incident happened on Newport Road around 10:30pm on Friday the 7th of October when a black vehicle, believed to be a Volkswagen Passat, made off from the scene, leaving a 34-year-old male pedestrian seriously injured. He remains in hospital.
Yesterday three men aged 18, 20 and 23 were arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and they remain in police custody at this time.
A 39-year-old man previously arrested remains under investigation whilst enquiries continue.
Plans to cut anti-social behaviour associated with a Teesside green space have suffered a setback after thieves stole fencing panels with equipment also being damaged.
Kingsley Field in Grangetown has been plagued by illegal off-road vehicles driving on it, forcing youngsters to flee, along with incidents of fly-tipping.
In an effort to protect the area and the neighbouring Greystone woodland, and make it safer for residents to use, £59,151 from Redcar and Cleveland Council, along with £40,000 from community group ‘You've Got This’ was committed in funding to pay for measures including fencing to surround the field.
But within hours of being installed eight fence panels and a ‘K’ barrier were cut down and stolen over two consecutive nights. A large CCTV column was also targeted with the access panel being sawn open and an internal control board set fire to.
The scheme has now had to be suspended while potential options are considered, which could include arranging overnight security while the fencing is erected.
