A taxi driver was arrested after a pedestrian was struck on Marton Road on Boxing Day.

The pedestrian, a 21-year-old man, was struck near the junction with Borough Road, Middlesbrough shortly before midnight.

He was taken to hospital to be treated for head injuries - his condition is described as "critical but stable".

The 52-year-old driver of the taxi, a Skoda Octavia, has been arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving. He remains in custody whilst inquiries are ongoing.

Flashing blue lights could be seen as police and ambulance services flooded the road.

A cordon was established as officers probed the scene, while a taxi appeared to be parked inside the perimeter.

At least four police cars were on the road, plus an ambulance.

Officers believe there may have been two passengers in the Skoda who have not yet spoken to the police.

A North East Ambulance Service spokesperson said: "We got the call at 11.52pm for a road traffic collision on Marton Road, close to the junction with Borough Road.

"We dispatched one paramedic ambulance who treated a male patient with head injuries before taking him to James Cook Hospital."

A Cleveland Police spokesperson said: "Officers are appealing for these potential two passengers, and any other possible witnesses, to contact PC Ivan Hughes via the non-emergency number 101, quoting the event number 218644."
