Cumbria road reopens after driver hurt in A66 crash

THE A66 in Cumbria has reopened to traffic in both directions following a crash that left a man injured.

Cumbria police announced just after 8pm that the accident had been cleared and traffic was again moving freely.

The incident took place at Brough, near Kirkby Stephen, at 2.10pm and the road was closed at the A685 junction for nearly six hours.

Emergency services were called to deal with the situation following a collision between two light goods vehicles.

One of the male drivers was not seriously injured but the other was taken to James Cook University Hospital with suspected head injuries.

A minor collision subsequently occurred, involving two vehicles and resulting in minor damage but no injuries.

Diversions were in place along the A685 while the road closure was in effect and drivers were advised to use alternative routes where possible.
