Pete Doherty is to appear in court accused of letting his manager use his car without insurance, it has emerged.
Andrew Boyd was driving a Daimler - allegedly the singer's - when he hit a pedestrian in Hadleigh, Suffolk, on September 27 last year.
Chris Corder, 42, was seriously injured in the crash and remains in a coma, his family said.
A spokeswoman for Suffolk Police said: "A 30-year-old man from Wiltshire has been summonsed to court to answer a charge of permitting the use of a vehicle without insurance following a road traffic collision on Sunday 27 September 2009 in Hadleigh."
The former Libertines member and Babyshambles frontman is due to appear before Lowestoft magistrates on February 24 - the same day Boyd will be sentenced at Ipswich Crown Court.
Boyd, 42, of north London, previously admitted dangerous driving, failing to stop at the scene of a road traffic collision, driving without reasonable consideration, driving with no insurance, failing to report an accident and driving without a licence.
