Woman killed in west Cumbria road crash named

A woman who died after her car crashed off the coast road between Allonby and Maryport has been named.

She was Yvonne Hetherington-Tunstall, aged 48, of Curzon Street, Maryport.

The accident happened at 11.20pm on Tuesday, near the B5300’s junction for Crosscanonby village.

Mrs Hetherington-Tunstall's S-type Jaguar was found on or near the beach, a short distance from the road.

Paramedics treated her at the scene.

“Despite their best efforts she tragically died at the scene,” said a police spokeswoman.

The police investigation will now try and find out how the tragedy happened, using both evidence from the scene and any evidence from witnesses.

A spokesman for the North West Ambulance Service confirmed that they were called to the scene but declined to comment further on the accident.

Police said the road reopened at 6.45am yesterday (Wednesday). There were no other vehicles involved and Mrs Hetherington-Tunstall was the only person in the car.

Anyone with any information which they think may help the police investigation should call police on 101 and ask to speak to Pc Martin Renney.
