Woman in hospital with spinal injuries after crash

A woman is being treated in a Newcastle hospital after she was hurt in a crash just off the A66 in Cumbria.

The 22-year-old from Penrith was transferred to the Royal Victoria Infirmary for further treatment on spinal injuries following the one-car smash on on the access road to Mungrisdale on Thursday night.

She was a front-seat passenger in the Ford Focus, driven by a 24-year-old woman from Penrith.

The driver suffered cuts and bruises while the passenger had to be freed by Keswick firefighters.

The passenger also suffered a leg injury and was initially taken to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle by ambulance. She was later transferred to Newcastle.
