A 20-year-old man has been charged with dangerous driving over a hit-and-run crash that killed two pedestrians, police said.

Mobein Ali, of Cromwell Avenue, Whalley Range, Manchester, will appear in court on Friday over the incident in nearby Hulme, Greater Manchester Police said.

A 37-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene while a 45-year-old man was taken to hospital in a critical condition but died on Christmas Eve morning.

Both were crossing Princess Road at the junction of Greenheys Lane when they were hit by a blue Vauxhall Corsa at about 10.15pm on Tuesday.

Ali, who is in custody, will appear at Manchester City Magistrates Court on Boxing Day.

A 59-year-old man and two women, aged 19 and 47, were also arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving but they have been released on bail.
