Three people charged over Barnsley hit-and-run

Three people have been charged over a crash in which a man suffered life-threatening injuries when he was hit by a car which failed to stop in Barnsley.

The 51-year-old, from Barnsley, was hit by one of two cars seen driving closely together in Racecommon Road last year.

He was treated for injuries to his legs, pelvis and head.

Two men, aged 48 and 20, and a 25-year-old woman, all from Barnsley, are to appear at the town's magistrates' court on 2 August.

The 20-year-old was charged with aggravated vehicle taking, driving without insurance, failing to stop at the scene of a road traffic collision and perverting the course of justice.

The 48-year-old man and 25-year-old woman were charged with perverting the course of justice.
