A66 road reopens after five-vehicle crash in west Cumbria

The A66 is now fully reopened after a five-vehicle crash in west Cumbria.

It was closed between Chapel Brow and the Brigham junction, between Workington and Cockermouth and was reopened by police at about 3.45pm.

The collision involved a Renault Clio, Renault Kangoo van, a Volvo heavy goods tipper, a Volkswagen Touran and a Ford Transit van.

Fire crews had to cut out the 21-year-old male driver of the Kangoo and the 57-year-old woman driving the Clio.

Both the Clio driver and a 32-year-old man driving the HGV were taken to hospital with unspecified injuries. They were not, however, believed to have been seriously hurt.

A 58-year-old man, who was driving the Touran, the Kangoo driver and the 53-year-old male driver of the Transit were not hurt.

Diversions were in place through Brigham.

The Pride of Cumbria air ambulance landed on the A66 near the scene, close to the layby which used to house Yum Yums cafe.

Anyone who saw the collision, which happened at about 12.50pm, is asked to call police on 101.
