A 17-year-old youth is to appear in court next month after a crash in Spalding on Saturday night.

Police and paramedics were called to Harveys Close, off Holbeach Road, where a woman was hurt when a car was in collision with her while reversing out of a drive.

An East Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said that the driver was treated at the scene for shoulder, neck and lower back injuries.

He was then taken to Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, but police have since established that he did not have permission to use the car and they charged him with taking a vehicle without and having no insurance.

The youth is due to appear before Skegness magistrates on March 29.
