Woman dies after three-vehicle crash in Cumbria

A north Cumbrian woman was airlifted to hospital after a fatal car crash yesterday.

The woman, from Longtown and driving an Audi TT, suffered multiple injuries and was flown to Preston Royal Infirmary after the three-vehicle collision just before 1.30pm on the A65 at Spital Farm, between Kirkby Lonsdale and Crooklands.

Her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

The female driver of a VW Golf died as a result of the crash. Police confirmed last night that she was from the Barrow area.

Her family have been informed but the woman has yet to be formally identified.

A male passenger in the car sustained chest injuries, which are not believed to be serious and he was taken to Royal Lancaster Infirmary.

The third vehicle, also a VW Golf, was driven by a man who suffered no injuries.

The road was closed until 6.30pm while road policing officers and the force's Collision Investigation Unit examined the scene.

The North West Air Ambulance, Great North Air Ambulance, Cumbria Fire and Rescue, North West Ambulance Service and police were all called to the scene.

Sergeant Jo Fawcett, of the South Cumbria Road Policing Unit, said: "Despite valiant efforts by police officers and passing motorists, who were on the scene within moments of the collision occurring and who administered CPR, the driver of the Golf tragically died at the scene."

Anyone who saw the collision should call police on 101.

How important are buses in this day and age anyway...?

If public transport is the future - why do councils insist on killing it off?

Very - for economy, environment and to prevent rural isolation.

They're not. Most people have cars.
