Former Premier League footballer Clarke Carlisle, who was seriously injured in a collision with a lorry, is awake in hospital.

His wife, Gemma Carlisle, thanked supporters on Twitter and confirmed that he is awake.

The 35-year-old former Professional Footballers' Association chairman was seriously injured following the collision on the A64, near York, on December 22 and remains in a Leeds hospital.

North Yorkshire Police launched an investigation into the circumstances of the incident and appealed for witnesses.

The Metropolitan Police later confirmed that Carlisle was charged with failing to provide a sample on December 20 - days before his serious injuries - and is due to appear in court later this month.

Carlisle " stable ' after A64 accident

Former Leeds United and York City defender Clarke Carlisle is in a "stable and relatively comfortable" condition, but faces a "long road to full recovery", his family have said.

The 35-year-old was seriously injured in a collision with a lorry on December 22.

The incident happened on the A64, near York, and Carlisle is recovering in hospital in Leeds.

A statement from his family, released by the Professional Footballers' Association, of which Carlisle is a former chairman, said:

"Our family and especially Clarke, would like to thank each and every person for their unbelievable support at this very difficult time.

"The fantastic and expert attention of all of the staff at Leeds General Infirmary has brought him from a critical condition to a stable and relatively comfortable one.

"However, this will be a long road to full recovery and the family would request that you respect our privacy at this time."

The family of former Leeds United and York City defender Clarke Carlisle has revealed he is now in a stable condition in hospital but faces "a long road to a full recovery." The ex-chairman of the Professional Footballers' Association suffered serious injuries when, as a pedestrian, he was involved in a collision with a lorry on the A64 near York on December 22.

It later emerged that just days before the crash he had been charged with a drink driving offence by the Metropolitan Police.

Tonight his family issued a statement through the PFA:

"Our family and especially Clarke, would like to thank each and every person for their unbelievable support at this very difficult time. The fantastic and expert attention of all of the staff at Leeds General infirmary has brought him from a critical condition to a stable and relatively comfortable one. However, this will be a long road to full recovery and the family would request that you respect our privacy at this time."
