Woman airlifted to hospital after crash near Penrith

A WOMAN was flown to hospital after the car she was in flipped on the M6.

Fire crews released her from the Toyota Hilux and she was taken by air ambulance to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle following a crash near Penrith.

The collision, at 10.45am yesterday, came just over an hour before another crash that led to three people being flown to hospital.

Medics said at least some of those involved in this incident had serious injuries after the two-vehicle collision on the A685 south of Kirkby Stephen.

Police, firefighters and paramedics were all called out. A Great North Air Ambulance helicopter flew the three – the two drivers and a passenger from one of the vehicles – to the James Cook Hospital in Middlesbrough.

The collision involved a car and a van.
