A MAN has been charged in connection with a crash in which a car mounted the pavement and hit two pedestrians.

The youths were seriously injured when a vehicle hit them as they walked along Blackhorse Road in Walthamstow just before midnight on Wednesday August 11.

The car then smashed into a bus stop and a house, badly damaging the building.

Now police have announced that Robert Lane, 27, of Tollington Park Road in Finsbury Park, will face court next week on a variety of charges relating to the incident.

He is accused of dangerous driving, driving with no insurance, failing to stop after a personal injury accident, driving not in accordance with a licence and failing to report a personal injury accident.

Mr Lane is due to appear at Waltham Forest Magistrates' Court on Thursday (November 11).
