A MAN has suffered serious injuries after a collision with a car.
The collision happened in Lee Road, at the junction with Marine Parade, in Dovercourt in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
A male pedestrian and a dark coloured vehicle were involved in the incident.
The pedestrian sustained multiples including broken vertebrae.
A 19-year-old male from Harwich has been arrested in connection with the incident and remains in police custody.
The incident happened at just after midnight when there may have been people socialising in the area who would have seen what happened.
Police are appealing for witnesses.
Dc Dan Jeffries said: "This is an extremely serious incident.
“It is my belief that certain members of the community may know what happened and could assist police in locating those involved.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact Dc Jeffries, or his colleagues at Clacton CID, on 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
