Appeal after Man Suffers Head and Leg Injuries

Police are appealing for information after a man was injured, possibly after being hit by a car.

A 54-year-old man was discovered lying in the road with head and foot injuries between 8pm and 8.30pm at the junction of Levick Crescent and Acklam Road, close to St Francis Church in Middlesbrough on Saturday 8th December.

The man was helped by a member of the public, who police would like to speak to, as they investigate how the man came about his injuries.

An ambulance took the man to James Cook University Hospital, where he had surgery on his foot to insert metal plates and also suffered a minor head injury which required stitches.

Police would appeal to the member of the public who assisted the man to contact them as they may be able to assist with their enquiries.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Lee Benson from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit on the non-emergency number 101, quoting event number 226810.
