Police appeal after crash driver flown to Newcastle hospital

A man was airlifted to hospital after a crash at Pardshaw, between Cockermouth and Egremont.

He had to be cut free from his Volkswagen Polo by firefighters.

The 32-year-old, from Barrow, was taken by helicopter to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle.

Police said today that he was in a stable condition.

Another vehicle, an Audi A4, was involved in the crash at 5.25pm yesterday on the A5086 but its driver was uninjured.

Police want anyone who was in the area at around the time of the collision to contact them on 101.

They are particularly interested in speaking to the driver of a white van which was overtaken by a green Polo before the crash.
