Woman killed in road crash named by police

The family of a woman killed in a car crash have this morning spoken about their loss.

Margaret Bold, 76, of Mansion Gardens, Egremont, lost her life after the Ford Ka she was driving was in a collision with a Peugeot 508 at Bigrigg on Saturday.

A family statement says: “Margaret was born in 1937 in Cheshire, where she lived most of her life. She married Alan in 1958 and they enjoyed life together until he sadly passed away in 1988.

“Margaret originally trained as a hairdresser, serving her apprenticeship at Owen Owen in Liverpool before opening her own salon in Halton village.

“After starting a family, Margaret joined the Cheshire Building Society where she worked until retirement. Margaret moved to Cumbria in 2008 to be closer to family and very quickly adapted to life here, becoming an active member of the local church, Mother's Union, Women's Institute and flower club.

"Margaret is survived by her two sons and their families who will sadly miss her.”

A woman, 86, from Egremont, who was also in the Ford Ka, was taken to the Royal Victoria Infirmary at Newcastle by air ambulance.

She was said to be in a critical but stable condition.

Police said the Peugeot was driven by a 40-year-old man from Whitehaven. He has been taken to the West Cumberland Hospital to be checked over.

The collision happened at about 9.35am.

The road was closed while collision investigation officers carried out examinations and diversions were put in place.

Anyone with information or who saw the collision is asked to call police on 101.
