Four children checked by paramedics after crash

Date: Tuesday 7th May 2019

A TWO-vehicle crash in the centre of Penrith briefly closed one of the town's main streets today.

A woman and four children including a baby were checked over by paramedics but did not suffered any serious injuries in the crash, which happened at 1-25pm.

Police and paramedics were called to Middlegate after a white Mitsubishi 4x4, driven by the woman, and a red Ford Focus driven by a man collided with each other.

A Cumbria police spokesman confirmed “the road was cleared within about 15 minutes of the collision”. Onlookers reported that emergency services remained on the scene for around 45 minutes.

An ambulance, a first aid quick response car and a police vehicle attended the incident on the one-way street.
