A man has been charged with attempted murder after a car crash in Newcastle.

A woman, 50, suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries when a car she was a passenger in struck a concrete post in the central motorway underpass at about 22:45 GMT on Monday.

A 44-year-old man was charged with attempted murder and dangerous driving.

He will appear before magistrates later.
