The crash scene

Emergency services were sent to the crash at Milltown, near Carlisle, at about 3.30pm yesterday (Monday).

Initial reports were that a person was trapped and seriously hurt in the overturned car.

The 41-year-old female driver, from Carlisle, was cut from the Ford Focus by firefighters using specialist equipment.

The Great North Air Ambulance was called to attend, sending its helicopter from Teesside airport as the Pride of Cumbria was responding to reports of a 70-year-old woman falling 30ft at Ambleside.

Despite initial fears, the woman suffered only cuts and bruises to her lower body, and was taken to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle by road ambulance.

It is not thought any other vehicles were involved in the incident.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact police on 101.
