Police name Barrow woman who died following three-vehicle Cumbria crash

THE motorist who died following a fatal three-vehicle collision in Cumbria on Saturday afternoon has been identified as a 73-year-old Barrow woman.

Police have this afternoon identified the casualty as Marion Teresa Jones, 73, of Barrow. 

The coroner for South Cumbria has been informed and an inquest will be opened tomorrow. 

The collision happened just before 1.30pm on the A65 at Spital Farm, between Kirkby Lonsdale and Crooklands.

Ms Jones was driving a VW Golf. 

The male passenger in the car sustained chest injuries, which are not believed to be serious, and was taken to Royal Lancaster Infirmary.

A woman from Longtown who was driving an Audi TT motor car suffered multiple injuries and was transferred by air ambulance to Preston Royal Infirmary. Her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

The third vehicle, also a VW Golf, was driven by a male who suffered no injuries.

The road was closed until 6.30pm while an investigation was carried out by road policing officers and the force's Collision Investigation Unit.

The North West Air Ambulance, Great North Air Ambulance, Cumbria Fire and Rescue, North West Ambulance Service and police were all on the scene.

Sergeant Jo Fawcett, of the South Cumbria Road Policing Unit, said: "Despite valiant efforts by police officers and passing motorists, who were on the scene within moments of the collision occurring and who administered CPR, the driver of the Golf tragically died at the scene."
