Man killed in north Cumbria road crash

A man was killed in a crash on a main north Cumbrian road this morning.

The head-on smash, involving a Suzuki Swift car and a HGV, happened on the A596 at about 8.55am.

The car driver was pronounced dead at the scene. He is from the north Allerdale area.

The driver of the HGV, a 45-year-old man from Liverpool, was uninjured.

The A596 was temporarily closed from the Carlisle side and between Wigton and Thursby roundabout. It reopened at about 3pm.

Police, ambulance service and the air ambulance were called to the scene.

Collision investigators are trying to establish the circumstances surrounding the collision.

Anyone who saw the crash - or who has information that can help police - should call the West Cumbria Roads Policing Unit on 101.

The dead man has not been formally identified.
