Cumbria police appeal after 'cut up' car hits verge, overturns

A car flipped over after hitting a verge when it was cut up by the driver of a ‘classic’ vehicle.

The woman driving the Vauxhall Corsa that crashed escaped serious injury.

Police are appealing for information about the incident, which happened on the A595 south of Bothel.

Officers said the 21-year-old in the Corsa was travelling south behind a car described as a ‘classic’. It was gold and similar to an Austin Allegro.

The two cars approached a slow-moving vehicle. Police said the Corsa tried to overtake but the other car pulled out when the Corsa was almost level.

This caused the Corsa to swerve and hit the verge. The ‘classic’ car continued onwards, said officers.

The Corsa driver suffered minor neck injuries.

The crash happened at about 4.15pm on Sunday.

Police are appealing for information on 101.
