A MAN has been charged after a Sale woman was seriously injured in a hit and run collision.

The 21-year-old man from Sale was charged with driving without due care and attention, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and failing to report an accident within 24 hours.

He is due to appear before Trafford Magistrates on February 7.

Linda Reeve, 58, of New Forest Road, was crossing Whitehall Road, in Brooklands, Sale, at around 6.40pm on January 23, when she was hit by a car.

Mrs Reeve suffered a serious head injury, as well as two broken wrists, two broken legs and a shattered knee cap.

She was taken to Wythenshawe Hospital, where her husband said she underwent a full day of surgery, but is now in a stable condition.
