The Wigan Athletic midfielder was taken to hospital and spent time in the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield, while the other driver was airlifted to Nottingham for treatment.

Twenty-two-year-old Flores will appear at Chesterfield Justice Centre on 4th April.

Flores’ loan spell at Chesterfield was cancelled by both clubs in January.

Last week he joined National League side AFC Fylde on loan for a month and was due to make his debut on Tuesday in the Lancashire Senior Cup semi-final.

Flores played 15 times for the Spireites.
