Police closed Four Elms Place after a man was struck by the car about 8.30am.
The accused will appear in Christchurch District Court today.
A resident said they heard a dispute before a man was struck by a car.
Another resident also told the Herald they had heard people arguing this morning.
Neighbours outside the cordon said the street was usually a very quiet area - and "nothing bad happens around here".
Police are not seeking anyone else in relation to this matter, but would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident.
If you can assist police with the investigation, phone 105, quoting file number 200730/8065.
