A MAN has appeared at court accused of causing serious injury to a pedestrian following a car crash.

Lee Alexander Hall appeared before magistrates sitting at Peterlee yesterday where he faced two charges.

The 20-year-old pleaded not guilty to causing serious injury by dangerous driving on November 11, 2019.

However he did enter a guilty plea to driving a vehicle whilst over the legal drug-drive limit on the same day.

Hall, of Oakwood Close, Sacriston, will appear at Durham Crown Court on November 2.
