Car 'drives into man' on Washington pavement

Police are seeking a motorist they believe deliberately drove into a man on a pavement in Tyne and Wear.

The 21-year-old was with friends in Washington, early on Sunday, when he was hit by an Audi A3 with blacked-out windows which had mounted the kerb.

The vehicle then drove off at speed without stopping, leaving the victim with head injuries.

Anyone with information about the incident, on Heworth Crescent, at 02:15 GMT is asked to contact police.
