A CAR driver has been arrested for attempted murder after a road accident in Middlesbrough.
Shortly before 3am today (Sunday, September 15), police attended a report of an accident on Cargo Fleet Lane in Middlesbrough involving a silver Vauxhall Corsa.
"The passenger in the car, a 23-year-old woman, was taken to hospital and treated for injuries to her arm and leg, and has been discharged," a spokeswoman for Cleveland Police said.
"The driver of the car, also a 23-year-old woman, has been arrested for attempt murder and driving while over the prescribed limit. She is currently in police custody. "
The road was closed for a while between Somerville Avenue and the junction with High Street, Ormesby, near to the Pennyman Primary School.
Detective Inspector Paula Cook said: "Although the incident happened in the early hours of this morning, there were a number of people in the area at the time.
"We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who has not yet been in touch and who may have information that can assist the investigation."
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has any information is urged to call Cleveland Police on its non emergency number 101.
