A man has allegedly driven a vehicle at group of people during a fight in a remote central Australian community, striking two.
The 22-year-old was charged with a slew of offences after allegedly targeting the group on Tuesday in Nyirripi, 415km northwest of Alice Springs.
These include hit and run causing serious harm and recklessly endangering a life, Northern Territory police said on Monday.
He was scheduled to appear in Alice Springs court and is also charged with drive a motor vehicle while unlicensed and drive an unregistered motor.
Two men aged 18 and 24, suffered serious injuries and were airlifted to Alice Springs Hospital for treatment.
A woman aged 28 was taken to a local clinic with non-life threatening injuries after she was struck to the head with an edged weapon during the same disturbance.
Nyirripi is an Indigenous community and has a population of about 240 people.
