Lisa had been travelling along Mansfield Road in a white Nissan Micra when it was involved in a collision with a silver Peugeot.

Ryan Clinton (21), of Gladstone Street, Mansfield, has been charged with two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving, failing to stop at the scene of a collision, failing to report a collision, driving while disqualified and driving without insurance or an MOT.

Following a brief appearance at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court on Monday 1st September, he was remanded into custody until his appearance at Nottingham Crown Court on Monday 15th September.

A 24-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender remains on bail pending further enquiries.
